Loved the course but thought it wasn't enough. I wanted to cover more topics, more material and more videos from our charismatic teacher Kimberley

Basic but wonderful instruction for creating what others think of when they think of you, and what you think of when you think about who you are.

very informative, although I had already learned some of the stuff that was taught, such as privacy (it was still nice to hear it again though!)

Lot of new stuff to learn, including thinking in a new direction. It'd be great if there was less reading material and more instructor videos.

Overall the experience was good but need to improve the sound in some videos and also there should be some practical tasks in course as well.

It was a great Lecture, but then again I'm a realistic person. 20% of what she taugth me was real and 80% was theories in a real world.
