“I have attended employment law training run by Julia Shallcrass. I have found the training to be of an extremely high standard with an excellent balance between knowledge, real-world experience and humour. If I need to attend any training or send any staff to training, I will look to see if Julia offers training that fits, as she will be my first choice.”
