What Attendees of this Exact Seminar Said After The Event:

“I first saw Ashley speak circa 1991, not only was he a dynamic and 'warm/affable' Lecturer, he was one of the most knowledgeable speakers I had ever seen. Fast forward to 2012, what has changed? Well I didn't think he could improve on what had gone before...not so, he is even more knowledgeable! He has also kept abreast with the times (whilst keeping his fundamental values) and his expertise is now greater and has a broader base. Put quite simply....don't miss this, you'll be behind the times if you do!” Clive Rodell, owner Clive's Quality Training
