A vast amount of material and knowledgeSep 27, 2013

Very good webinar, very clear, not many participated, was glad someone asked for an explanation of a term as people seem to be terrified of asking when they do not understand. Ms. Bauer was very well prepared, had organised her session well, no breaks, so no waste of time, though session could not possibly be longer. Voice and speech very clear. Well done.
