“Couldn’t be bettered! This is the best course I have been on. My interest was maintained throughout the course because of the 1-to-1 support and coming to site to identify opportunities for savings. During the course the site visits and experiences of other businesses was also very useful. The timing of the course suited the business as the year goes on; cost impacts on the business continue to increase.”
