""The Master Debriefer Course is the most finessed and informative course I have ever attended, and was well worth the 24 hour adventure from Australia!  Since day one of the course, I had many 'lightbulb' moments .... these will not only enhance my own personal development, but will be invaluable for mentorship of my faculty.  They provide impeccable knowledge and tools, while reducing my fears (and anxiety) with incredible friendliness and support.  Their team is amazing!""

""This was hands down the best debriefing course I have ever attended!  What I loved most about the course was not just the amazing faculty with their incredible breadth and depth of experience, but also the generous sharing among the participants who came from a diverse range of disciplines .  The venue and meals were excellent ... I highly recommend this course, it was definitely worth flying 13200 kilometres from Singapore to attend!!""

""The Master Debriefer Course provides a unique balance of refining existing skills and teaching new approaches to debriefing.  The course offers a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere and a great balance of didactic content and experiential opportunities.  One of the greatest strengths of this course is the space (emotional and cognitive) the expert faculty provided the learners during practice sessions.  I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to enhance their debriefing skills!!""
