I had great time during the training. Geraint was excellent. He was communicating very well with the people and if you had any sort of questions he was willing to help. I will definitely choose IT Governance again in the future.

Geraint was knowledgeable enough to add value across each domain. He could control and direct the 29 people in the group and was sociable and amiable in the post course interactions at dinner and in the bar. We had a very worthwhile week’s training.
