John held a fantastic course, highlighting the 'best practice' techniques with realistic industry examples and situations. I found his teaching style very engaging and he went out of his way to answer questions in different ways and elaborate on potential outcomes. I look forward to resitting for the opportunity to learn more from him. He is a wealth of knowledge and a fun teacher to learn from.
