It was very good, I was impressed, I would have loved to do this course in person but this was a good alternative. The speakers were very good, very knowledgeable but also good at teaching/ relating information. The presentations were easy to follow, it was useful to have the documents there to follow along as the speakers talked. All the content was relevant to the topic and occasional humus. I enjoyed the course and would recommend Management Forum to my colleagues.
