I just wanted to say an extra big thank you for providing such a great service. Online, at night and in the comfort of home – with my two young children asleep in the other room – pretty awesome actually. It was very engaging and entertaining.

Mike, awesome course, fantastic resources and a real wake-up for someone who considers himself technically astute but not necessarily updated!
Shaun Hardy - Coffs harbour High School
"OMG!!! What a change! This class has a lot of students in it, and I find the room very small for all the different personalities. But after I set the picture, the students were working with me instead of against me. Love the training you provide!"
