“ Resound Training and Development have done it again. Amazing videos which touch sensitive topics that managers face everyday. Perfect in length, with real people that you can relate to. Shared these with my Managers, Directors of HR and Managers in Training and they all loved them too. Look forward to watching the next edition. ”Rachel BegbieRegional Director of Human Resources, EMEA Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts
