"The course was one of the most unique experiences that I have had! I learned many new and valuable skills that I believe will help me in the future. The training was very well organised and the content was very useful and beneficial. The practical exercise was extremely valuable and the most enjoyable element of the course."

"I found the course I did with ABF an essential part of my preparations for my mission in South Sudan. They provide a professional and practical approach. I left the course not just with some very practical tools to enhance my security and the security of team members, but I learned a way of thinking about personal security and planning that will enhance the working of the team on the ground as we deliver on our objectives. It was immensely helpful that I was brought in on the planning to this training, and so it was tailored to my needs and situation. The risks in South Sudan have not changed, but after my ABF training I feel more confident on how to approach the various risks."

"Being advocates of change comes at a cost. The courses are delivered by exceptional instructors who have mastered in their area of work. I highly recommend if anyone is interested, to sign up to one of the courses offered by ABF."

"ABF provided extremely valuable input to the Dóchas membership on Data security and becoming GDPR aware and prepared. They presented the core issues to be addressed and what member organisations need to do to become GDPR compliant. They also facilitated a Q&A with our members and the Data Commissioners office and helped get the most out the session. AFB were extremely professional, accommodating and easy to work with, especially given the diversity of the member organisations."

"I can’t even begin by saying how amazing this experience was for me. These 4 days taught me a lot of useful skills and gave me a taste of a world beyond what I would have imagined. The course did not only teach me about security awareness, but I also got to learn about myself and how I can train my mind to adapt and react appropriately to whatever situation I am put into. Honestly, the way the program was laid out and tailored to meet the interests of each one of us was just astonishing. And it made this one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever had."
