What students are saying about the training series:

I just wanted to take a minute and thank you guys for holding the Sales and Marketing Seminar for contractors in the energy efficiency industry. It was jam-packed with useful information that has really started to make a difference for me now, about 2 months later. I would say that I struggled to apply the information at first, but not due to the content or delivery method more so due to that I wasnt in a professional situation that warranted its use until now. Recently, I even called the gentleman who gave the seminar where he lives in California and he was kind enough to spend time to explain things to me that I was struggling with, and the result is that I am quite optimistic and confident at a whole new level in my ability to get the word out about my business. If you guys ever have him back, please let me know so I can nab a front-row seat! - Anthony G.
