Elaine was an excellent instructor. She took the time to sit with everyone in the class and give recommendations on how to utilize best practices for our team.

I consider myself a seasoned BA yet Elaine still offered a fresh perspective and new tools. I found her very knowledgeable, engaging and supportive. Her method of presentation made the materials easy for absorption. As well, she is a very pleasant person with a genuine personality.

Elaine was an extremely knowledgeable instructor. She was able to bring the material to a level that we could associate with any level of our responsibilities. It was extremely helpful training.

Our instructor, Elaine, was awesome! She was so experienced at all levels and enjoyable to talk to regardless of our questions. She had great ideas for how to apply our Action Plan to goals that we could actually use once I got back to the office and work with my boss on development. Thank you Elaine!

Elaine was by far the best instructor I have ever had for any class at any level!
