Perhaps the most important part of our work day is seeing how our guests respond to their programs. We see changes on an hour by hour basis, we see self discovery – we see the very beginnings, the slow smiles as happiness and joy are released – in slow measure at the start, but its not long before we reach the moment when they can’t wait to tell us all about what they are feeling
