"Many thanks to Lindsay and you for the very interesting workshop that for sure ignited my interest to ask better questions to the others but also to myself! I am very proud to be part of your inaugural group and please do not hesitate to contact me if you need my support. In my work plan for the near future, I will try to be more conscious which is the very first step that I learnt this morning, to ask open-ended questions and change very bad habits I have like constantly interrupting people when they speak… This workshop was a first step to start changes in my life!"

“I found the Asking Better Questions workshop to be surprisingly useful in a wide variety of circumstances. The concept of “potentialising” myself and others by improving the way I think about the question process can be used as a writer, as a manager, as a wife and mother… the list goes on. I will never think about questions the same way again!” CRCE Member, Faith Chanda, 17 Nov 2015
"What you are doing is good & meaningful work and I hope that more people will come to learn about the importance of asking better questions." AAS Member, Lyn Wong, 17 Nov 2015
