I have used Chris' training company on many occasions and he has consistently delivered a professional and focused training experience. I would recommend his services to any company looking for training across a broad range of standard and bespoke software.
Fantastic Business Objects training. Well worth the time, thanks so much for the extra information emailed after as well.
Chris trained our entire business intelligence team and numerous other employees on Business Objects. Chris developed the training material, administered the training from end to end, wrote a great manual, and was very well received by everyone. Chris is very knowledgeable on the subject matter, and his training style is entertaining and thought provoking making learning fun and, more importantly, memorable. I really enjoyed working with Chris and learning from him. I highly recommend Chris.
