phoneArrange a call back

I want to express my thanks for your courses last week. During my 18 year flying career, I have attended many courses, but none as informative or enjoyable as yours. Your enthusiasm and professional energy cut through the usual 'seen it all before', reading from PowerPoint nonsense and kept the content focused and relevant. The jammy dodgers also helped enormously! I would greatly appreciate your contact details to discuss a few career points which were informally mentioned last week.
