What our clients say

Contract Management – Legal Fundamentals – Webinar

Yesterday’s webinar could not have come at a more reasonable time. I have been going over a potential subcontractor’s departures the last couple of days and there were quite a number of things listed that related directly to what was discussed yesterday. Had I not been present for the webinar, I highly doubt I would have picked up on a lot of the very small adjustments in the clauses but more importantly, the knock-on effects. Prior to this, a number of our subcontractors have been smaller businesses or have been dealt with at a higher level. When I ran over these with my Commercial Manager, there were not as many that he did not agree with or have to provide further clarification on, showing a significant increase in my knowledge and understanding of what was being asked. Can you please pass on my thanks to Cameron for not only covering these off but explaining them in a very easy-to-follow manner so that someone like myself, as a Contracts Administrator, can improve in my role and continue to grow professionally.

Training was conducted in a very easy-to-follow manner and I got a lot out of it.

Cameron's presentation was in lay-man's terms and not too legalistic. He has a pleasant manner, good delivery, good engagement and obviously knows the content thoroughly.

I found Cameron to be engaging and he had an excellent way of holding the attention of the room whilst making the learning interesting.
