Business Training
“This was a great course. The use of physical simulations was a definite improvement on traditional teaching. It enabled me to grasp finance within a day.”

Finance Awareness
“I must say that among all courses I took for finance this one displayed the most easy and effective way to read & understand the basic financial statements. Your professional conduct, modesty and great experience were of great pluses to the program. I hope we meet again in future program.”

Sales Person of the Year
Angus tells the tale. “I had to present with other finalists to a panel containing the Managing Director. The Influencing Skills course told me to think of the motivation of an audience (profit) and the Presentation Skills module told me to stay quiet when I gave out samples.”

“I kept the presentation short, I focused on the profit impact of my initiatives and I left them to examine products and ask their own questions. My sales results were no better than others, but I became the winner. Thank you. I can use these ideas with my real customers.”
Sales manager, Packaging Company
