    Russell my "acct manager" was great, easy to work with and responsive to my needs. it was great having one contact. I also needed to call for IT support with my logon. the team there were very responsive as well. Your pricing is very competitive. We will be using PD Training again. Will talk to Russell as I may have a need for 35 students to attend a course that we may need to alter. thank you.

    I have not enjoyed a course so much for a very long time. Michaela's style of instructing was great; the use of charts as opposed to the standard PowerPoint presentation was refreshing and engaging. I would attend any course in which Michaela was the presenter.
