"I thoroughly enjoy learning about the Art of Deliberate Success with David Keane. I must admit I was a bit sceptical before I enrolled in this course but I soon realised that the 10 Behaviours programme has something for everyone whatever stage of their lives they are at. It has certainly helped me to make some positive changes that have really made a difference to my work and home life. It was great having the course online book which I could listen to in the car or on a run and I still dip into random chapters now the course has finished.  I recommend this course to anyone who wants to grow and develop in their professional and personal worlds.” - Charlotte Cantley, CPD Academic Director, NZVA
