THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION
‘Lucinda was always knowledgeable, enthusiastic and open to our suggestions, and essentially managed to get a group of scientists to embrace the arts: singing, humming, moving, laughing and playing games, all with the aim of learning about theatre, performance and communication. I feel I know much more about myself and my strengths and weaknesses in communication and I feel that my patients have benefitted as a result.’
