    The course content was excellent. I feel it will help me not only with clients, but in my daily life. My only concern was that I found it difficult to take notes because of how fast he was talking, combined with the amount of writing on the slides. A lot of stop and start. Clearly the speaker is very knowledgeable and I found it very interesting.

    It's very important for a trainer to help motivate others. In return You definitely learn how to motivate yourself through helping others become motivated.

    ACE RESPONSE: Thank you for the great feedback!
