“I just wanted to take the chance to say a genuine thank you for the delivery of the Asset Valuation Course. I found it very interesting and informative and your delivery turned what could be quite a dry subject into a really worthwhile course which hopefully will help us take the best approach to our Asset Valuation Program.

"I think the course is very well structured and although there is a substantial content, overall it is broken down to manageable modules which, hopefully, means that we have come away from it with a decent understanding of what we should be thinking about in the approach.

"However, without question, it is your own personalities and delivery make the course enjoyable and more than worthwhile.

"Thanks again.”

Gerry McParland, Team Leader, South Lanarkshire Council
