"I loved all the examples of AI in real life and I also found the activity of working through the framework as a team on the example we had. it has helped me understand the type of 'thinking' and 'questioning' that needs to take place specifically for AI that's different for other forms of tech. I also loved all the simple and powerful visual diagrams in the workshop content. [...] Personally I have a much greater understanding of AI and the role it can play in organisations and the opportunity ahead. Professionally I have more clarity on how to move forward with helping organisations adopt AI from a people change perspective."

— Leisa Hart - Adaptive Change Mindset

"It's been wonderful to spend more time with Braneshop and [...] learning about the different types of leaders out there wanting to tackle AI! [...] The first part was particularly great, going through at a fast pace the types of examples of different AI case studies, particularly the machine-vision ones [...]"

— Sarah Kaur - Portable

"It's given me a greater understanding of AI and the way I can implement it in my business including some of the challenges. [...] It really challenged me to think outside the square! There's a lot of thought that goes into designing an ai system which I was unaware of. From UX to the business side, a lot needs to be considered. The group exercises really helped break this down. "

— Damian D - Everline
