    I just completed this course this week and have to say that it was the most enjoyable training course that I have ever taken. Thomas Manson, the instructor, has such a brilliant personality for teaching what most would call boring material – his sense of humor and obvious genuine interest in every class member’s success really make this class worth going to more than once – I am certain that I would learn something every single time. SO ENJOYABLE – I can’t say it enough.

    I took Thomas Manson’s Powerpoint class two years ago and just repeated it last week. I learned as much the second time as I did the first time I took the course. He is an excellent teacher and takes a genuine interest in all of his students. I highly recommend the powerpoint course for anyone that uses powerpoint to make presentations. You will be glad you took the course.
