What our clients say

Drafting QITC Contracts – Webinar Series

I just wanted you to know that your training courses have helped me to secure a new job. I have attended both your ICT Procurement Essentials and Drafting QITC Contracts Workshop and have applied the knowledge to my role successfully.

Great practical knowledge, tips and insights. Working through a practical example was incredibly helpful.

It is obvious that Cameron is a QITC expert.

Well organised thoughts, speech and slides, with practical examples and theory ready to hand. Able to answer questions readily. Seems highly experienced. Covered a lot of ground in 5/6 hours. This was the most useful QITC training I have done.

Cameron was clearly very experienced in the subject matter and was clear, concise, and easy to follow.

Webinar works exceptionally well for those of us who are time poor, especially being able to catch up later if we miss a training session.
