Testimonials from the Bank of England

“We were really impressed by the facilitation training delivered by the EEF team. They managed to devise a session that was very focused on our specific requirements and delivered it in a fun, engaging and really thought-provoking way. We look forward to working with Emily and her team again in future.”
