Course reviews

"When I attended the Win More Conference and Events course, I had only been in my current position of Hospitality and Events Manager for two weeks and couldn’t have attended a more appropriate course at this time.  I found the instructor to be very knowledgeable in her field.  The content of the course covered a wide variety of elements all relevant for anyone working in the Conference and Events industry. There was so much to take away and action immediately and much more to develop at a later date.  I had a two hour journey each way to attend this course and was glad I made the trip.  If I was scoring this course it would get a 10/10 for trainer, venue, content and relevance"
