The level of detail was excellent, as was the opportunity so many people with so much practical experience.

As well as practical things such as calculating the volume of the household items I learned how to ‘sell’ things more, including letting the customer know exactly what kind of service we provide as a company.

Nick was fantastic. He was knowledgeable, very easy to listen to and made it interesting. I’d absolutely recommend the course.

The course was informative, well presented and easy to follow. Importantly I felt comfortable asking questions when I felt the need to.

It was very interesting, and I feel that I’ve learned a lot not only from Nick. but from the other delegates too! Would definitely recommend.
