I recently attended a course with Richard Edwards, his first for Girlguiding.
He was extremely welcoming, and if he was nervous, he certainly didn’t let on! He gave us his history, which although varied, meant that he knew his topic well, and as a result we all felt safe in his hands! We had a lot of ground to cover in a short space of time, but he did it in such an informative way, that it never felt like an overload. We were able to put our skills into practice too, where he put us all at ease. I would definitely recommend his training to other organisations, especially as he also offered visits for units to cover basic first aid, complete with ambulance (availability permitting!), something I know the girls would love. He is an excellent communicator, who was able to answer any question thrown at him, of which there were many!
I look forward to seeing him again in three years!
