""The Master Debriefer Course was a life changing experience.  You gave me the tools and skills I need to be more effective in facilitation of debriefings, thus allowing the participants to gain more from simulation.  It is near impossible to pick what I enjoyed most, but your consistent modelling in your interactions with us is near the top of the list.  You rocked the online format.  I can't thank you enough!""

""Thank you so much for such a great course!  I was so impressed at the expertise of the panel, and that they were so accessible during the online breakout sessions.  I also really appreciated how the team "walked the talk" in terms of ensuring psychological safety in the sessions and making everyone feel included.  Thanks for the wonderful experience ... truly one of the best courses I've ever attended.""

""The Master Debriefer Course is the most finessed and informative course I have ever attended!  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!""
