“Your course is brilliant I would recommend it to anyone.” Solution Architect

“The course was very interesting and it is what I needed. I found it very professional and it will help in my future career.”

“Thank you. It was amazing how [the training] helped me understand architecture terms and concepts.

I have started to put into practice some lessons learned and look forward to the practitioner course soon.”

I really enjoyed your course and [have since] found the material you presented very useful.” Solutions Architect

"explains what others (TOGAF, CMU…) leave obscure."

“Really good and provided me with new views on EA and SA – one of the best trainings I attended.” Enterprise Architect

“Your exam preparation really useful (a key objective for me).” Consultant

One of the few people I know who can articulate this area and subject in an understandable format.” Consultant

“It is amazing how my conversations have changed!

On Monday I had three conversations that [made me] realise the positive effect the course has had… many things I now understand that I had only the smallest glimmer of before.” Infrastructure architect.

“An intensive course, covering the end-to-end of enterprise and solution architecture, from a tutor with a clear in depth knowledge and experience of his subject matter. A ‘must’ for all technologists, not just architects, it provides the structure of what all of us do on a day to day basis, business, data, systems and technology.” Solution architect

“thank you for an interesting and stimulating course. It covered a lot of what I was expecting and more, and opened my eyes to architecture questions and concerns I need to be more familiar with....

Your anecdotes and examples helped make what is often a dry subject more interesting... [it] really helped me to grab the fundamentals of what it takes to be an Enterprise Architect.” Business intelligence architect.
