(Delegate comments)

"The feedback from my consultants has been excellent. … [They] came away from the training with not only a sound knowledge of the IT spectrum, but an idea of project and development lifecycles, the type of roles within technology, how to interview these candidates as well as being able to differentiate between the great, the good and the average."
(Paul Elworthy, Managing Director - London IT, Hudson Global Resources Ltd.)
