When you register for the conference you will be asked to gather participant comments about your class/sessions – what do they get out of these, what do they think has improved in terms of their life and attitudes, has it given them a new lease of life? You will be asked to bring these along with you and we will gather them on a large ‘Wonderwall’ for all to see.Winners (announced at the end of the conference) will receive a special certificate from LLT plus a new roll of theraband for their group 🙂
