The trainer did an excellent job of incorporating everyone’s experience and his experience in all the companies he worked on earlier. He even answered all doubts/questions separately, did not leave a single question unanswered.The facilities in the venue (Davanam Sarovar, Madiwala) was also managed very well.

Attended workshop in December 2017

I attended CSPO training in Goregaon(W) on January 9th&10th by prof. Sekhar burra. It was a great learning experience. Sekhar's approach to this training was amazing as he cleared in the start what to expect from this course and how it will help us streamline the process followed in our organization. It's very tough to cover all the things in 2 days but the way Sekhar manage it is really commendable. I would recommend this course to all the aspirants.
