"Very engaging presenter with a lot of industry experience" L.M.

"The facilitator was engaging, knowledgeable and presented the information in an interesting way”  D.W. 

“I thought the course was very good. The presenter seemed to know their stuff and had some interesting stories which underlined the main points they were making” P.S.

“I found the presenters had an excellent subject-matter knowledge supported by their work history, and practically applied this to the learning environment.  As a relatively new procurement practitioner, I found their delivery was targeted well on developing specifications” N.D.

“The trainer knew their stuff – the session was engaging and I found the discussion of case studies from other organisations really helpful”  S.L.

“The workshop was very well run and one of the best I have attended.  What I liked was that there were no distracting “Games” run and everything was to the point and illustrated with good and relevant real world examples”  K.B.

“I found the training very engaging especially with the presenter providing examples of big government contracts going wrong costing millions”  R. Z.
