Short recomendation: My experience of facilitating training with Dannielle is a very postive and enriching one. Dannielle is very thorough in her planning, preparation and delivery. She makes sure she knows all what is to know about the content she is delivering and ensures it is accessible to all and any participant she is to train. I would highly recommend Dannielle to be part of a pool of trainer as i know she will bring a lot to it: her professionalism, her commitment and positive attitude.
