"Thoroughly enjoyed these sessions. It is amazing that so much bonding and connection can be done over this cold medium. The lecturer was exceptionally skilled at engaging us, and drawing us out of our shells, and making us comfortable enough to share our thoughts and answers; right or wrong. Would definitely recommend this class to others who are looking to enter the field of Project Management."
