Testimonials from Seminar Attendees:

“I have attended numerous training seminars on marketing during my 22 years. Over the past few months, I have come to realise that the way we are doing things these days are just not giving the results we should be getting. I have been looking at a lot of different ways of doing things but just could not find anything that nailed it. Until yesterday!  JISLAAIK it was like a fresh Cape South Easter that just blew in a lot of fresh ideas and ways to do things differently. It blew my mind. Thanks a lot, you opened my eyes to a new way of looking at how we were doing marketing and what we are doing wrong. This was just AWESOME.” – Jan-Hendrik Stander, Marketing & Product Manager
