The bottom line: we learned more than we expected

We all were of the opinion that David is an excellent trainer. He was very prepared, knowledgeable, resourceful, flexible, very professional, had a good sense of humor, and was very gracious. We give him a unanimous thumbs up! We could tell that he had taken the time to carefully evaluate our products and gear the training to our needs, and we were very impressed and appreciative of this. He also got us up and running easily on Illustrator as it pertains to our products. Any company would be lucky indeed to get him for training. The bottom line: we learned more than we expected to learn and it was well worth the money. We now have a good beginning grasp of how MAPublisher can assist us in our mapping endeavors. Thank you very much!

Walked away from the class with many new tricks and techniques

I thought the training was excellent and very informative. I have been using MAPublisher for many years as my primary GIS application and I still walked away from the class with many new tricks and techniques. The training was much more useful than I expected and I would highly recommend it for my coworkers. I appreciate the time taken by Jeff to help me work out more advanced problems while others were working their way through the manual.

MAPublisher is an excellent tool for making good quality maps using Illustrator

It was an excellent training. MAPublisher is an excellent tool for making good quality maps using Illustrator and having "data" behind which let us make different queries. We knew that and having found it was very, very useful for us. In reply to David's comments, I will tell you that he was a very "patient" teacher with us. We felt very comfortable with him sharing experiences and questions as he's open mind [sic]. He was deeply involved on how to transmit his knowledge to everybody in a very short time.

I found the training session very useful...I've already produced one graphic for publication and today will attempt to make another four! So I'm really getting to know the software now.
