    Great job with the course. I feel far more comfortable with everything from finance to innovation. I have a better understanding of which areas I want to dive deeper into and which areas I now feel comfortable in.

  • Nathan E., Senior Technical Solutions Specialist Nov 17, 2023

    In terms of preparation, I found that there was minimal marketing or course syllabus material that could have adequately set my expectations for the course. However, I must express that the course surpassed my expectations. Jeffery's delivery was not what I anticipated; it was notably more engaging and immersive.From a curriculum perspective, the course struck an excellent balance between accounting, finance, marketing, business, and executive-relevant coursework over the five-day duration. Jeffery, as a subject matter expert with extensive experience in the field and a diverse career, brought a unique contextual perspective to the material.One aspect that stood out for me was the emphasis on team building and team-gaming simulations to make business decisions. This interactive approach added a dynamic layer to the learning experience. The course placed a significant focus on the accounting and financial aspects of business, gradually expanding into marketing, leadership, and management concepts.Overall, I believe this course is highly valuable for anyone seeking to enhance their business engagement, both in terms of hard and soft skills. It not only provided comprehensive content but also delivered it in a manner that was both informative and engaging. I appreciate the opportunity to have participated in such a well-rounded learning experience.
