Andy's knowledge of Govt agency requirements and his ability to clarify the seeming unfathomable made our application smooth sailing.

His manner is so gentle and supportive that the pre-audit nerves were quickly soothed.

We come back to Andy for all our compliance requirements: he has been ably assisting us now for 9 years.

Great presenter. Very supportive. Nice and clear. Knows his stuff! Plenty of activity. Excellent training session...
