Recent comment from a workshop delegate  
''Just wanted to drop you a quick line to personally thank you for help with all the arrangements that made last week possible, thanks to all the staff at BM TRADA for making the week comfortable.  It was a really good course, both in terms of structure and content and I learnt a great deal, the tutor was very informative and clear with his description and interpretation of the ISO 9001 system.

The venue I thought was very good. The break out area where we could grab coffee but also did some exercises meant we were never stuck in the same room for long. It helped relax you and meant we could mingle easily - Looking forward to my next course.''
