I’m really thankful for the help everyone at Acorn Training Consultants has given me; they listened to me and my ideas instead of writing me off due to my dyslexia, and helped give me back my confidence. It’s really reassuring that I can call them or pop in anytime if I ever need any help or support.Ronald Gomersall
