I gained great insight into professional business writing and learned so much in such a short space of time.
I learned a lot and feel that this will really benefit me in the future. All really applicable to the workplace.
Very insightful course. Tiernan was excellent and I enjoyed both 1/2 days.
Tim Murnane, Rabobank Dublin
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.
