Instructor was excellent enough to recommend. However, the venue was so hot and airless that it was an effort to concentrate on the otherwise excellent programme. I was almost nauseous while in that room. Also, Raindance staff walked in and out of the room during the presentation and were conducting other business on laptops, accessing the fridge and kitchen cupboards during the event. This was distracting. Was it really necessary when there was another Raindance office right next door which also had a kitchen?
