It was greatly appreciated by all of us. Regards Mary

George was informative, approachable, friendly and confident in his knowledge. He presented the topic in an interesting way and allowed enough flexibility for our staff members to ask questions when needed.

Hi George… I am glad for you that you are moving to QLD but say it is going to be our loss. Thanks for everything you have done for us, the staff at Greensborough still talk about you and the presentation you gave and have without exception said that they have never had drugs explained so well and understandable…
