"Holly demonstrates and role models a remarkable level of personal authority, warmth and ability to connect with participants and create a rich and diverse learning experience. She managed to get a group of senior NHS and social care leaders to co-compose their own score and theme through song and soundscape. Our programme literally took off as a result of Holly’s intervention”
