"The instructor was top-notch! Very knowledgeable on subject, well-prepared, …great examples.”

"Bill Smith was thoroughly versed in the subject matter.”

"Relevant examples, humor great, excellent management of time, impressive command of material and course, good voice inflections…”

“Very knowledgeable on the subject…able to create a great learning atmosphere


“Bill was an excellent instructor. The course would not be the same without him.”

"I never would have believed this 'dry' subject material could be presented as interesting and entertaining as it was - excellent instructor.”

“Excellent sense of humor!”

"Great instructor! Kept things lively and interesting!


"Bill was a very engaging and lively speaker. His presentation of CMMI was informative, particularly his down-to-earth examples.”

“The instructor provided real life, relevant examples for every question asked… Excellent mix of model theory and application.”

“Bill's personal examples made the content real.”

“He brings life (reality) into the course. He draws the class into active discussions on practical applications of the process areas.”


“I valued the instructor's ability to put CMMI in perspective. It is a framework -- not the reason to come to work or the way to solve all our problems. This gives him a lot of credibility.”

“I can't believe I enjoyed this course. I now better understand what my organization is trying to achieve.”

"Bill Smith is the best instructor I have encountered in recent memory. His effective use of linking, chunking, and real-life examples made some of the more complex concepts easy to understand.”

"Exceptional. Engagement techniques made the absorption of course data fun/easy. Had the ability to relate to all the demographics of the attendees. I had a great learning experience.”
