"It was awesome - I can't say enough how much I enjoyed it and what I learned. For every session I attended I typed up my notes.
By the end I had 12 pages of notes to submit to my boss who was blown away by the content and is going to have me present to my peers in the near future."

- Yolanda R. Vereen, CDM, CFPP, FMP, CFSI
