David is a fantastic teacher and his courses are a standard part of our new starter training at Cancer Research UK for a whole range of our public health teams. He's covered everything from cancer biology to diagnosis and treatment with great style and endless knowledge. His courses give a great overview that will help you make sense of the complicated world of cancer care.
A really comprehensive yet easy to grasp course which gives attendees the confidence to talk about cancer in greater depth.
Regarding the course, I will endorse this highly to colleagues considering this in the future at both our charity and others. Brilliant course, many thanks.
A very good course. Very relevant information, clearly explained and well delivered - good use of humour and genuine attempts to answer all questions as fully and clearly as possible, even if they were slightly off topic. A very enjoyable day.
I thought this was a great course! It was fast paced, challenging and really informative. I came away feeling like I had learned a lot in a short space of time and I'm sure it will be put to use as soon as I am back in the office. Totally recommend.
I did not expect to be totally engrossed with all aspects of the day as I much as I was. David made what could have been quite a heavy and intense day very enjoyable.
Thank you David for a wonderful course - it was worth the wait, and was everything my colleagues had built it up to be.
I felt everyone in the room got a lot out of it, it was pitched at the right level for all trainees, even though we all come from different area's in CRUK. from the nurses to PHD's. Great course, I will be recommending it to everyone and I'll hopefully sign up for one of your Webinars.
Thank you David, it was an excellent workshop which I felt privileged to attend. I learnt so much which I'm sure I am going to find very useful.
The course was one of the most engaging and interesting courses I've ever been on, largely down to the imagination and creativity of the trainer. Dave makes complex science fun and memorable and has the ability to engage everyone in the room, really capturing the imagination of the entire room. also, very patient when answering questions and ensures everyone is given time to speak.
