Dr Canillas brilliantly brings out the best in our shared knowledge and experiences. (He) validates our experiences. We left better prepared, hopeful and rejuvenated with fresh ideas.

We really had in-depth and honest conversations…it was truly a safe space for all of us to learn, grow, challenge, and share our thoughts as well as experiences. I feel changed.
