Thank you so much for a great training week. First of all I would just like to say that your training contents is amazing and that your trainer Ian is even more incredible. His ability to engage my staff was fantastic. It is a massive feet for the boys to complete a whole week of training without leaving half way through, but the fact that they stayed and participated was a true reflection of your trainer and training. I have collated feedback from all participants and will present to Executive for their perusal. Once again thank you for a great week of training.
