    Instructor was amazing and very easy to follow. He made the complicated stuff very understandable. The class is filled with information, and sometimes it’s hard to digest everything. I.e financial performance and planning is at the end of the course […]

    Steve is a very good instructor with tons of experience that he shared in the class. I think the pre-reading should have been sent out earlier since most managers attending the class have very busy schedules. Perhaps you should also give an indication to future students that it is a considerable amount of pre-reading and time needs to be allocated for this purpose.It is probably more challenging for us who don’t have English as mother-tounge

    Excellent Course, very well presented, but a little too intensive. I think 5 days plus the exam would have been better.
