Bonnie P Matthews

"As a nurse moving into the education area, I needed to learn how to create PowerPoint presentations quickly and creatively and manage a variety of spreadsheets. I had the pleasure of attending several of Chris’ training classes.

He was very thorough and efficient, while keeping the class interesting with his energetic personality. He used scenarios that were relatable and we practiced in class for real-time learning. I walked away from his courses more proficient and ready to create education on my own.

I highly recommend Chris for your education and training needs."
