“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday. The day was fantastic from start to finish and I can’t over emphasise the impact it has had!

Our flip chart is now full of ideas all informed by the consultation, the discussions focused our vision. I’m so fortunate anyway to work with such an enthusiastic team but the team I came into this morning were even happier, more confident and raring to go!

They felt that listening to the wealth of experience and knowledge that the CBUK team bring but also learning that a large charity had to grow and learn along the way was invaluable”
