      Thank you, Jim for an excellent training yesterday. The flow of the class, the participation that you evoked from each person, and the content and lessons were exactly what we were looking for. Hopefully its not just the number of red cards we passed out that sets us apart from other companies. Great job, thank you. I hope we have an opportunity to work together in the future!
