His approach to designing and delivering training is summed up by this comment from a participant:

“I just wanted to let you know that I thought that the course was terrific.  I have already used a couple of simple, dynamic tools which I learnt last week this morning with a very positive result.  That has got to be the best measure of a course's value.”

•    Relevant business expertise on both sides (buyer and vendor)
