Participants' comments:

The seminar provided me with much 'food for thought' as how the task of supervising and managing professional staff needs to be completed in a way that evidenceswhat is required more effectively."

This was a useful and stimulating seminar, and I intend to incorporate the knowledge into my supervision."

I very much enjoyed the seminar and in my position as manager within an IFA I am able to implement some of the strategies that Sharon suggested such as reflective supervision."
