In the Company of…
We also have a bespoke option if you’d like to come and spend some time ‘In the Company of…’. One of our teaching staff will have a conversation with you as you arrive to help you focus and to make sure you have some good resources, not least through our library. We’ll talk with you at the end to help you take things onwards. The dates are entirely down to you so get in touch to check availability. You can find out more on our dedicated upcoming events page and if you’d like to read a reflection, to help form an idea of the things you can do, one of our guests wrote an excellent blog piece.
