Google Participants’ Feedback

The trainer was extremely engaging. The examples were relevant to our work and also gave us a perspective of the industry standards as well as nuances of other industries. The quiz questions kept the interest and energy levels high during the training. The notes that were being made on the projector really helped gain a better understanding of the topics that could have otherwise been very theory heavy.
