"The course exceeded my expectations in many ways as i have been given the most from the course, luckily there was only two more people at the session. All questions and concerns were answered and the trainer had given me alot of examples to help me understand. Big thanks to Terry and Chris my two trainers for the effective communications and principles of business writing. Both courses were handled very professionally and a lot of information was given."
