“John, I really appreciated your high level of professionalism in the way you spoke, the way you maintained command of the room, and, of course, in the content of the course material. You were confident but in no way arrogant – and respected all thoughts and comments. Thank you so much for the class!”Advanced Expert Witnessing Attendee, Baton Rouge, LA, Jan 19, 2023
