Recent feedback:

Absolutely fabulous. Brendan was perhaps the most engaging instructor of an accredited course I've ever been a part of. His skill set, lived experience and versatile engagement methods were so valuable in delivering the content to a diverse group of participants. I found it to be particularly impressive how he appropriated information to our relevant client base of people living with disability. He's certainly an asset to MHFA.

Brendan presented the material in a way which made the topic interesting and easy to learn. He had a very gentle manner and handled the information and the group in a very sensitive way. He was very engaging and always willing to discuss all the issues and questions we had.

Brendan was very knowledgeable and created a fantastic learning environment
