“I participated in the ‘Discover Your Best’ course from my dining room table during the 1st Covid Lockdown. The course is transformational and focused on cultivating self-mastery, giving us the theory, skills and tools to build resilience & self-leadership and culminating in attendees developing holistic ‘life’ roadmaps underpinned by an understanding of our own personal philosophies. I still have my workbooks and use my toolkit today! The course was expertly delivered by Stephen and was for me the hi-light of those unprecedented weeks.
Highly recommend this one!” – Brid Dilworth – Facilities Management Team Leader – Eli Lilly
