I think you will have appreciated that last night’s session had a profound impact on us all and I just wanted to say that it was everything and more than I was hoping for.

Thank you so much. It was an absolute masterclass in content and facilitation, and I believe it will have far reaching implications for our organisational direction on so many levels.

Thank you also for your kind feedback about the organisation. It has been a tough couple of years for many reasons, not least of all managing our response to the pandemic. It means a lot to get your perspective as someone new to the organisation.

We don’t get it right all the time, but we do want to make Julian Support a better place where people can be authentic and thrive.
