Pre-workshop questionnaire 

All participants will be required to complete a pre-workshop questionnaire that will generate your reported Personality Type. The questionnaire takes around 15-20 minutes to complete. Reports will be provided at the workshop. During the workshop each participant will aim to work out their personality type themselves before  their report is provided.
