Some comments from our regular participants:

"As always, this was a really brilliant workshop.  I love coming to the Learning Breakfasts for lots of different reasons but the reasons that stand out the most for me are:

- A great learning experience – I always learn something new that I can put into practice straight after the session

- I’m able to share what I learn with my team, bringing their development on as well

- I often bring a team member with me to the sessions and they’re always very positive about what they’ve learned

- They’re a fantastic networking experience.  I’ve met some great people I’ve then LinkedIn and collaborated with outside the Learning Breakfast setting

Overall, I would recommend the Learning Breakfasts to anyone with a passion for learning and a desire to meet like-minded professionals in the Peterborough area.  Thanks again for today, it was a great session".

"I have been attending the learning breakfasts organised by Jennifer and Judith for two years now, and I always come away inspired.  It’s great to work with a group of open minded people, sharing ideas and experiences.  The tools provided by Jennifer and Judith help me to put what I have discovered in to practise and use in every day situations. 

I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Jennifer and Judith".
