Renee Moodie is probably the most patient, helpful trainer I have had in a long, long time.

We have worked in large groups, small groups and on a one-on-one basis, and she never ceases to amaze me with her patience, how tuned in she is to individual needs, her understanding of people and the dynamics of working with difficult and often complex personalities.

I still remember the lesson on a green Mac at IOL many years ago like it was yesterday. What was to follow was a great career in online, print and broadcast media because I stood on the shoulders of a giant called Renee.

 I am a big fan, you have an unrivalled talent for making reading – even of dry topics – such a pleasure. As I try to tell my researchers, there is elegance in simplicity.
