"A really good, enthusiastic and patient teacher for the Animate course, so thank you. I have had training with you before on the InDesign course with someone else, and I was also happy with the teacher then. So you're very good at that"

"Like the small group, introduction and an overview from the trainer. Also liked having an initial chat at the start of the course to see what everyone wanted to get out of the course."

"Iwan was incredibly friendly when coming into the classes and asked us in depth to how we would use animate in our jobs. The teaching itself had very good pacing and was thorough. The hospitality and food were great. It was nice to see a small clasroom which allowed Iwan to talk and help in the practice projects"
