"I have nearly thirty years experience as an information systems manager and I cannot recall meeting a trainer with the combination of teaching skill and subject knowledge that you displayed over the last two days. I am self employed and so time spent on a course is time spent not earning. This was worth the money and my time!"

Trinitas Consulting

"Excellent in all areas. The trainer was fantastic."

University of Glamorgan

"I just wanted to let you know that I've managed to replicate the steps you showed me in FileMaker on my organisation's database and have managed to get my invoicing layouts to work perfectly. Thank you very much! I've also been able to use some of the other things you showed me to good effect too so the course has already helped enormously. Just thought you should know :-)"
