“I found the introductory course very practical and useful to anyone working in teams or groups or anyone who manages a team. I wish as a lawyer in my previous life that I’d had the opportunity for this kind of training years ago. There are lots of ineffective managers being trained on expensive in-house courses in law firms in the city. WPF I think provides much better value for money and much better training in a related kind of field.”
