His extensive knowledge meant that he could talk through numerous real life examples when explaining a subject. He was also extremely patient when answering the many questions he was presented with!

This is the best course I have ever attended. I was worried about completing a 5-day course in case it lost momentum during the week, but this didn’t happen. James was such a knowledgeable, engaging tutor that I was invested all the way through. I have learnt so much which will assist me in my role and benefit my organisation. I cannot recommend this course enough!”
