“Louise, I just wanted to personally inform you of the great response my travel agents had after your specially designed TICO prep course. I have arranged many classes over the years and my agents mentioned they have never experienced such professionalism. They truly appreciated the way in which everything was organized and most importantly the way in which the classes were delivered. As you know with over 60 agents it is not always easy to please so many. However all were delighted and truly enjoyed the content of the classes. I am pleased to pass on this good news to other organizations” – Gary Unsworth
