I wrote this review because I am ever grateful to the niece of an acquaintance (!) for giving me the recommendation-gift for this course over dinner (!) in early April 2016 and to myself for acting on the recommendation and completing it in the next few weeks. Hoping to re-gift the recommendation, I attended the course a second time -with unabated interest- in early 2021, in order to prepare this review.
The attached 3-page review includes description, main messages, valuable tips and specifics on how the course was useful to me as a learner, teacher and professional.
