Comments from Students

Awesome week packed full of info that could bring the way a company doed presentations to an extremely higher standard. Mr.Michael G was excellent!!!

- L. P., Nov 06, 2015

Michael did a GREAT job. I continue to be impressed.

- D. A., Nov 05, 2015

The way this course was designed is fantastic. It's almost completely void of lecture but instead filled with hands-on learning. Michael did a great job - most likely the best prepared and knowledgeable online instructor I have had the privilege of learning from. Thank you!
