What our customers said

“Karen Froud-Murray of Vital Spark Consultancy presented our Receptionist Training for White Cross Vets’ 2nd Congress.  It took place over a full day and was an interactive session with our Group Receptionists.  Karen was very professional and made the training enjoyable.  Each part of the session made you think about the role you play as part of the White Cross team, and how you could adapt to improve.

I would highly recommend Karen and would definitely invite her to present for us in the future.”
