You did an excellent job of delivering the training and I genuinely appreciate your dedication to the job at hand. You added a lot of value to the process. Thanks.

(Great) diversity of participants – backgrounds, knowledge, and skill level, enthusiasm and openness to sharing.

Fabulous resource material. Hilary and Christine are impeccably professional generous with their knowledge.

High level of intellectual content – much of it “new” information and presenters are current.

A wide variety of issues with very practical applications.

Very important subject matter presented in a very helpful way.

I am surprised by how much I learned. Not because of the instruction, but because I came in feeling that I had been through this type of material several times before. Thank you for the ongoing education and a change to revisit what I thought I knew.
