The seminar was incredible. I was not expecting such a high quality presentation. That seminar was one that anyone from non-technical agent to a technical person like me could learn from. I took 13 pages of notes during the 3 1/2 hours of presentation time. I am so glad [we] decided to attend. - R. Henry, IT Director

I really enjoyed the workshop and took away a lot of great information from it. You don't have to be particularly technical to absorb the concepts and general ideas. I thought the tools on the thumb drive were such a nice touch! It was well worth my time and I wish that several colleagues of mine had attended.
