I found the entire course worked well. The order in which the topics were presented, and the emphasis on the EA role and how it can be used most effectively. The course was guided by the practicalities of the role and included real life examples from both trainer and participants.  I was in awe of the ladies on the course and the positions they hold. I learn that the role is more management/partnership oriented than I had believed. Delighted to know that there are so many more options available for me to pursue.
