Worlds of Work Notes
I was extremely impressed with the event. The hands on experience offered much more than comparable events in the past that I have attended. Again, I think the program was absolutely phenomenal.
The students were wonderful to work with any my employees had a great time. I can only see it evolving into something even better in years to come.
