GLS was wonderful to work with – your team was organized, prepared and on top of the timeline. And I appreciated Melisa’s customized approach to the agenda by gathering intel and case study examples from the client and sharing the course materials ahead of time to make sure expectations were going to be met. Melisa is so professional, intentional, and committed to creating a learning experience that drives for competence and leaves the firm more knowledgeable and better prepared for future standards.
