Barcelona, Spain


Workshop leaders: , Richard Allaway

Excellent presenters! They were very knowledgeable, supportive and understanding.

I've known Richard's resources for a while, and it was great to finally meet him and get a feel for his teaching style. Ellena was amazing as well, she seemed to cover the 'dry' content, but it was smooth and made really fun. Both Richard and Ellena are top presenters; friendly, knowledgeable and approachable.
