    Course was good. Instructor was very engaging. It was clear he knew his stuff and knew how to teach as well. I felt that the material on how to read a financial report was interesting but not so relevant to my job. Could have used less of that. I was able to stick to my No-Caffeine rule in spite of what was arguably a very dry subject. He's a keeper in my opinion.

    Given the smaller class size and similar backgrounds I would have liked to see more similar examples of businesses in the same industry. It does help to have a financial background

    It was a lot of material in a short period of time. Luckily our facilitator was amazing. Aadil was very expressive and wow is he ever intelligent! he really knows his stuff and he wanted to make sure we understood what we were a good breakfast, you're going to learn a lot.
