"The instructor was fantastic, he kept me engaged and the course was detailed and thorough. I really enjoyed how he created drawings on screen that we could later get access to instead of taking us through lots of slides. I was aprehensive about the length of the days and worried I would zone out but he offered plenty of breaks and opportunities to grab a coffee and move about a bit."

"Ive used Firebrand several times now over multiple job roles. I found this course GICSP was the most interesting course so far. This was hugely down to the instructor''s interaction with the team and his shared real life scenarios. He is very knowledgeable indeed and presents the course in such a manner he made the subject feel much easier than it was. Its obvious that he is both passionate and dedicated in what he does. I look forward to attending onsite next year with him as the tutor"
