‘Ian made everyone feel welcomed and the content was in small enough bite-sized pieces that I never felt overwhelmed with information.’ Lacy Lee
‘Ian has such a wide background and packs every minute of the course with information and advice. His attitude is encouraging and non-judgemental. He is the best tutor I have ever had.’ – Sheila Preston
