"Thank you again Bruce for the wonderful course! You know those courses (whether online or in person), where someone is speaking and your mind just wonders or your head starts nodding — this wasn’t one of those! Very informative, all good and relevant information, and I loved all the personal comments, stories, real life examples, etc. that you throw in – it becomes an informative conversation vs a lecture." — SCS Participant
