"I attended your MBA Impact seminar last week and
while I am a long time CEO I enjoyed the day very
much and took away a number of things with me that
I feel will be of significant value. I am looking
forward to getting other of my staff members enrolled
to go through this course as I can see when they
will surely benefit. The section on Finance stood
out in my mind as a wonderful tool for those without
accounting backgrounds but with bottom line responsibility
to aid them in understanding basic accounting valuations
and ratios. I think this is the best I have seen
on this subject. Great job and continue the good
