Raymond was a very engaging trainer, extremely across the topic and an all round great bloke. The course and facility was of a high quality but Raymond definitely made it stand out as the best course I have done. I would highly recommend Pinnacle to anyone as a result and will make sure that my company considers Pinnacle first for any future training.
