Martyn is a great instructor and very informative, time flew by!

 

Good course, thought provoking.

 

Very good course, well presented and excellent content.

 

Very enjoyable and really surprised me in terms of things like how little we observe even when we think we are looking!

 

The road seminar was excellent and the instructor we had was one of the best classroom trainers I have experienced in any subject.

 

Far more useful and informative than expected, thank you!

 

Very good session, Pete was very knowledgeable and made the content come to life. Thanks for a valuable couple of hours.

 

Very good course, actually learnt things!
