He is very Experienced & Knowledgeable trainer, explains the concepts in a simple and efficient way. In case of any doubts, he re-clarifies it and also if required he re-iterates with more practical examples. Sessions are very interactive and useful. Flexible with the timings and also very supportive in terms of knowledge sharing. Would definitely recommend him for MS project trainings. Thank you Venkat.
