The program: Exceeded Expectations

The thing loved most about The Power EA: Learning new things, the coaching sessions at the end of the module where I was able to discuss the topic in more detail and learn even more and challenge or understand my way of thinking. I got to learn more around various topics. For me, I believe EA’s need to focus more on 1:1 coaching and I liked the structure of this programme.
