As someone who was offered the course with no previous experience of contract’s but with the aim to hopefully get involved with them – I found your delivery of this course to be simplified enough for my understanding, engaging, with your real-life examples, and going through my notes today has confirmed that I have gained a wealth of knowledge that I did not know before yesterday.
