‘Carol got excellent feedback on the sessions she delivered for Real World Group on a major NHS Foundation Trust team leadership programme. The content, on promoting their work and inspiring their teams, was highly relevant to NHS managers and engaged and motivated them for the final session of their leadership programme. We look forward to working with her again.’
