    I loved that the attendee numbers were the course were low (there were 7 of us). This allowed every participant to have lots of time to ask questions. The instructor was well versed in his subject matter and included lots of group activities which allowed the attendees to immediately put into practise what they had learned. CMC was very good to deal with, sent out links to all relevant course material well in advance. I am lactose intolerant they provided food suitable for my needs. Thanks!

    I liked the options provided for presenting reports and the different tools out there to spice up a presentation. I would've liked to learn best practices on how to analyze data and how to approach a situation with a lot of data to review.Salima is very knowledgeable and is able to bring the concepts down to a personal level so that we can understand how to apply them in our everyday lives. She is relatable and approachable.
