Learning from Paul and Ashwin reminds me what is important in genuine, curious and open communication. I walked away with a fresh perspective, renewed energy and new skills to play with."

Absolutely loved this workshop. The combination of understanding the mechanisms behind how and why we communicate in the ways we do, mixed with the techniques to interview and think differently were superb. Would highly recommend this training to everyone, the tools and thinking shared can be applied to any situation where you are communicating with someone else or trying to learn more about someone else's experiences or perspectives for whatever reason."
