Great instructor. A lot of great information for shippers.

As a newcomer to export, it was all instructive. Loved Paul's style of presentation/teaching.

Thank you for the training. Having only been on the job one year, it has been helpful to have a more debt understanding of rules, regulations and terms. I am going to try to attend more of your workshops. I think they would be very helpful. You are a wonderful speaker. Very easy to follow and it keeps people engaged. Your "tone" made it easy to listen to you. You would make a great college professor.
