I think Galway Executive Skillnet is doing a commendable effort opening your courses.

And you are the best of all the Skillnets out there!

Wow! Just Wow! I signed up for the Presenting with Impact course via Galway Executive Skillnet that took place this morning. And I've just opened my inbox to find a 41-page workbook to download. And we have homework! I just can't get over the calibre of the curriculum offered... 

You're running such a valuable resource!

I would (and have) highly recommend the Managing Conflict course to my colleagues.
