The session was really good. I like how it pushed me out of my comfort zone to talk about my business to other people in a different way.

Thank you to the Cultivate Team and all contributors & participants for the opportunity to take part, meet share/discuss ideas. It’s been an honour and a pleasure and above all fun.

 It’s so nice to see how the cohort have really taken on board the learning from the programme and you can clearly see that in the quality of their presentations!
