James Perryman' delivery was second to none. The course had plenty of methodologies which I simply was unware of, or if I did, there was a better structure to them. I'm looking forward to attending more courses to further my management development.

Larry excelled in his delivery of the course and bought energy to this. It was interactive which made it enjoyable and learnt many new things in the day.
I really liked this course and I feel that I learned useful methods and tips which I can use during my everyday work. The mixture of the 'theoretical' and the practice part was perfect for me. Plus point that beside the course itself the whole program was well-organized including the breaks and lunch.
