Kim Banz

I really liked the trainer and I liked that the class was small which gave the training an opportunity to be more intimate. I appreciated that the trainer did some research on each of us, our respective company's and social media channels and we used them as examples when covering some of the content. Great course, great training, great content and I loved the location. I will definitely take more courses.
