Life Lessons has changed the way I’m going to do my events. I’ve been to so many talks here and they’re fantastic. I’m so grateful. I’d love to do more work with you
I had a wonderful time at Life Lessons – even better than I expected, and I was expecting a lot. All the visitors I spoke to told me they'd had a fantastic day.
Life Lessons is a great idea. It feels like there’s not enough of it. I would like to think that this is the start of a sea-change I guess. In that it’s something going forward that people realise needs to be part of our everyday thinking.
