"I truly walked away from your course with a lot more knowledge about Business Continuity than I could have gained by just reading books. I have some experience in disaster recovery but never thought there was so much more to learn. I am back at work utilizing everything you have taught and now I feel much more confident to do a Continuity pitch to my senior management. Thanks for a great experience.
