This is one of the best courses I have ever attended which is primarily down to the trainer as well as the content. 

Tiernan was just incredible. His course was just spot on for the entire duration even down to the smallest detail. Most courses fall flat on day 2, this didn't happen here. The way he balanced professionalism, learning and fun was just inspiring.

(The Springboard Entrepreneurs Programme) has been amazing, with very experienced and inspiring contributors, I am delighted I got to participate on it.
