    Instructors practical experience is appreciated. Tools (excel sheets) on CD will be very useful. Some of the videos shown are inspiring! (orchestra leader)

    Maybe too much homework each night. Fast-paced but very interesting. Knowledge of the instructor is excellent.

  3. Barry Pownall says:

    Excellent support material. Excellent instructor.

  4. Oliver Drüner says:

    I do support the course setup as it is. It is still a lot of knowledge presented within a short period of time.

  5. Louis Verschuur says:

    Extremely impressed with Steve’s knowledge and training style, also with non native English speaking students. Thanks Steve. The course was very well presented. All points were explained extremely well backed up by good examples. Little bit too much homework.

    A really enjoyable course, and excellently presented

  7. Thierry Fargeau says:

    Great training we should follow earlier in career. Lot to absorb in few days. Will need homework once back to regular life. A refresh session “web based” could help. I would accept to receive once a year (or twice) an exercise to do on a specific case.

  10. Fabio Aniballi says:

    The majority of the modules are standard working practise and I understood them in full. However I strongly feel that there should have been more time to get prepared for the final exam.

  11. Paul Capindale says:

    I have found this course extremely beneficial and thought provoking. It has highlighted other ways I can present back to the business my ideas in a different way. It has made me very interested in more formal management training.

    * Overall good class. * Good to define the expected level of pre-knowledge / or the check.

  16. Dirk Soetekouw says:

    Speed of handling some topics could be higher. Perhaps a regular check with the students might help to see if speed can be increased or not, more so since some course material was quite basic such as histograms and their use.

  17. Andreas Wirtz says:

    Update material to latest/greatest in service industry. Update video material. Get more interaction […] around the class modules

  18. Andy Macnab says:

    Steve is an excellentinstructor and managed to put across potentially difficult material in a way that is easily related to. There is a huge amount of material to be covered and maybe it is squeezed in a bit too tight. The course should absolutely […]
