I love how we interact and it's flexible, it's agile, it's not set in stone. Everybody wants to help, so for me it's been an environment where you can thrive.

Sarone Thomson in a black ribbed top and floral skirt seated and smiling in her academyEX testimonial video.

I've never felt more aligned in my entire life. I feel so unstoppable right now, and that's why I feel like I can't describe in words how much I've gotten.

I wanted to actually influence change and get it done correctly. What academyEX and the MCOR progamme offered me was a different way of looking at change.
