“The team at MCI have been great to work with, from early discussions, through shaping the training and then delivery.  My team have come back from the training sessions more closely knit, enthused and full of ideas.  What more could I ask for?  One of my team members said “I have been on a lot of training, but this was by far the best and the most useful".”
