In this training, my root cause was identified, and the instructor provided coaching to fix it. The best thing about the course is the personalized 1 on 1 feedback provided.
I really have to thank Rob for passing all his knowledge to us for better writing in English—using simple words, being expert, getting to the point, and keeping in mind who is reading your email, notes, or memos. He is kind and professional, and I really enjoyed his class.
The instructor was engaging and she kept us interested in the topics. I would sign up for another course with her without hesitation.
