The NEON Sprints Facilitator Training paid off after the first 10 minutes. We love the hands on approach that allows everyone to learn by actually facilitating instead of watching powerpoint slides. We’ll be back for more.
We’ve learned so much more than just Design Sprints. It’s a bootcamp to form team- and workshop leaders. Tough and extremely fun at the same time.
