Melanie Cant

Social Housing Law Expert, Barrister, Faciliator

For me everyday is a school day. If you’re not learning, you’re not improving and providing the best service that you can. Impactful training has a huge role to play in this. If your training makes just one person help someone else in a meaningful way then, for me, it is worth it. That’s the worth of great training and why everyone should know that it exists and who provides it, so I would encourage you to enter.
