"I found the Grit and Grace programme extremely energizing, inspiring and motivating. I am now more aware of my strengths and core values and it has given me a great foundation and insight from which to further my leadership and strategic development".  Deborah Carr, Philips  
"This is a unique programme, different from any other leadership course I have been on. The programme helped me learn a lot about myself and the type of leader I want to be. It is a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere and well worth it."
Roisin Murray, Tascom

"I would recommend this programme to women of any age and position in life who is interested in self-awareness and development, both personally and professionally. The foundation laid affords more opportunity to build and grow."
Josephine Deehan, Fermanagh & Omagh District Council

"This programme gently started participants on a journey of self-examination and realisation of ability and strengths and weaknesses. It underlined the very principles of leadership – taught us about respect, inspiring and cultivating respect through our actions. I do thoroughly recommend this programme as a celebration of who we are and who we can be!"
Diana Armstrong, Fermanagh & Omagh District Council

"I would highly recommend this programme as it takes you on a journey of self-discovery, reflection and most of all it is fun and enjoyable. A must for any aspiring female leader."
Mia Coyle, Strabane Training Service

"Thank you so much for leading us through the fantastic Grit & Grace experience. The programme gave me the opportunity to recalibrate and make changes that were probably long overdue. I have changed job role after 30 years! Thank you again- I will be recommending the course to my colleagues and I hope that they get as much out of it as I did."
