We (the delivery team of Marie Fingleton, Christine McNally and Jasmina Stanisavljevic) found the standard of operation at ReSPA to be very courteous and professional in every respect. Members of staff throughout the School were highly professional and supportive. Facilities were excellent. It was also very helpful to us to have ongoing co-operation with the Training Manager both prior to, during and upon completion of the Programme. We thoroughly enjoyed delivering this programme to the HR professionals of the Western Balkans in association with ReSPA and would like to record our thanks, in particular to Mr Goran Pastrovic and Ms Dubravka Jurisic in ReSPA for their excellent professional co-operation both prior to and during the delivery of the training. We would also like to acknowledge the excellent co-operation and support of the team of professional interpreters and the IT, Marketing and Catering staff of ReSPA, all of whom, through their various interventions facilitated us in every way possible and enhanced the learning experience for the participants.
