“Diane was a very good trainer who did an excellent job in reading us during the session.  She was able to slow down and focus on areas where we she saw we didn’t have a clue and speed up when she saw we were engaged.  Diane came and met with us a few weeks before the class to better understand us and our needs.  She also scanned our website to understand what we do, what our customers say about us, and even developed a high level knowledge of our industry, which is not easy to do.”
