“I enjoy training because I like interacting with people particularly those who are confident in their field but not confident in the class room! I have yet to facilitate a training session where I have not learnt something from my learners and where they have not learnt something from each other, awareness they are doing things right, an issue that arose with an EHO or meeting like minded people from a business that they never knew was even there! Food hygiene is serious but it doesn’t mean it has to be boring discussion always makes for a more interesting way to absorb the facts so come out, or let us come to you but train in a group environment and you will be surprised just how much you will get out of it”Sunnibha
