What Our Clients Say

The Silver level of Colourful CPD'S AVR Award has given me a good insight into how much a receptionist has to deal with. Sometimes we feel unimportant, however our workload is varied and needs to be done properly to ensure the smooth running of the practice. It's not until the course has been completed do you realise how many things we do as receptionists and how much we need to know. I have enjoyed the course and I am really grateful to have had such an amazing coach who gave her time to mark my work.
