Mike has a good presentation presence. Clear communication, well organized. Ability to answer questions.

– Security Manager

I was looking for general information to begin this quest. The entire presentation was beneficial to me, but I really value the examples provided, as well as ways to fund this endeavor by simply changing shipping terms and some protocols. It will allow me to become more educated in topics that are vital to ensuring trade compliance and will help the company avoid costs and lower our budget. I am always impressed by Global Training Center.

Instructor has great depth of experience.
