I would like to thank you and your colleagues at the IICI for such a wonderful course in The Hague, despite the cold and rain. I learnt so much and had a great time. The trainers were patient, interesting and informative. I really enjoyed going to the military camp, given I don’t get too many chances to get inside a tank or hold an AK47…

The past two weeks have been such a wonderful experience. So I am writing to say that it was the most interesting, fruitful and pleasant training I have ever been to.  Your management of the challenges of our training and your skills in engaging the participants was outstanding.  What really amazed me was, how aware you were of everything that was occurring in the classroom, and how you managed to help each attendee personally and to initiate discussions of the topics everyone was thinking and wondering about
