I took up the CSPO training in the last week of March conducted by Vivek Angiras in Bangalore in Davanam Sarovar, Madiwala. The infra was perfect for conduction of the session, including the space, stationery, acoustics and lightning. Vivek clearly has ample experience to conduct the training which you realize when he says examples from real life. At no point did he allow the sessions to go slump and ensured that it was more of an interaction than a discourse. Absolutely recommended.
