"The premises were totally professional which lent confidence to the whole course, the welcoming bacon rolls and delicious lunch added a whole dimension giving us the chance to talk to others and learn informally.

I really enjoyed the course today, i couldn't fault it. You were efficient and really friendly and generous with your food and knowledge. You really came over as authoritative and knowledgeable about the subject." Dan Dalgleish

The meat of the day (sorry) was undoubtedly the depth of knowledge that you shared with us, being patient of our questions and always ready to explain quite complex issues. It was good to have such a variety of techniques explained, demonstrated and then given to us to ‘have a go’. The day felt very generous, especially with so many products to take home..
Thanks to you both for really good course.
" John Hamilton
