Edel has a passion for training and enjoys the interaction with her learners over the duration of the training course. Many of her learners often put the ‘Skill of the trainer’ as the highlight of the course on their evaluation form which is testament to Edel’s natural training style. She often surprises her delegates when she asks as an ice breaker, for an interesting fact about themselves and she tells them she met a canonised saint (No, she is not ancient), she had a private audience with Pope John Paul Second, now Saint John Paul!!.
