"This course was excellent, it delivered a great depth and range of material in the matter of 2.5 days. I went away from the course with a much better understanding of why analytic techniques are used, and what ones are better suited for different contexts and issues. Donna has done a superb job curating the course to be relevant, immersive, and fit for developing analytic skills that are practical and reasoned." 
"What really set this course apart was the culture in the room – Donna established a dynamic of engagement, respectful challenge and collaboration. This tone fostered questions, feedback and enabled robust discussion of approaches and conclusions when working through exercises that added real benefit to the course."
