"I really liked the complete openness to answers and input from Arlen towards the participants. I have never once got the feeling he didn't agree or approve of an answer. He would always except the answer and either expand on it or add his own experience or thoughts. While always praising or energising the participant. Very valuable experience." - Chief Acceleration Officer
