"Max had an obvious passion for Sketchup his enthusiasm knew no bounds, even though his own speed and skills acquired over many years working with this program were way ahead of most, his tutorial skills and attention to his students were exemplary. I found the whole experience very positive and enjoyable, and for myself very informative. "

"I thought the course content and the instructor were excellent and I was pleased that it was a small group size. The only thing which was frustrating is I felt I spent a lot of the day waiting for others to catch up. It's quite a difficult one to resolve but I think it would be a good idea to provide additional activities for users who are faster than others to best make use of the time and learn as much as possible. I do still feel that there is a lot more to learn on Sketch Up so if you offer a further advanced course I would definitely be interested. "

"Phil is a brilliant, dynamic instructor - his subject knowledge is fantastic and he delivers at a great pace - we covered a massive amount of content in a short space of time and it all made sense! The content was tailored to suit us - none of us would be using Sketchup for landscaping, so more time was spent covering interiors and aspects of the program that would be relevant to our work. Thanks Phil!"

Phil really took time in answering all our questions, was very helpful throughout the full day and was very energetic and enthusiastic which is what you need in a training instructor, otherwise the training would be boring which this was most certainty not."

"It was perfect to put me on the right track. Max is highly experienced and gave me great info and lots of tips that would enhance my sketchup skills. He pushed me into working more freely with the software. Although one day is never enough, as there's a lot to know, but I still find that I am capable of jumpstarting my skills.Again, thanks to Max"s free spirited teaching techniques!"
