World class speakers, good mix of live cases and lectures.

Hands on sessions, excellent live cases, excellent panel.

This course is informative, engaging and interactive. Very practical approach and good cases with fantastic experts but also a nice mixture of people attending the course and participating.

Superb speakers and a comprehensive range of relevant topics. Live cases were of a range of complexities and highlighted varying techniques.

Good lectures. Breakout sessions are good for fellows to practice.
