Kevin Seale, Crawfordsville, IN   "This was without a doubt the best class I have attended in many years.  After 15 years in big corporate America, I've spent my share of time in training classes.  This one was not only educational it was entertaining. I was really impressed that you were able to keep a wide range of people up to speed with the materials.  The depth of the program and the many tips, tricks and traps you covered should allow anyone to get started the minute they leave class.  Read More Student Comments
