I wanted to hear about the new animal health legislation - which Julian Braidwood succeeded in doing.

Marianne Valentin Hansen, Drug Safety Specialist, Pharmacosmos, Nov 21

Julian was speaking in clear language and in a nice tempo (not to quick, not to slow). He acted immediately if a participant wanted to ask a question...Very good, very comprehensive.

Charlotte Jacobs, Regulatory Affairs Officer, Beaphar B.V., Nov 21

Very good!

Ruud Huibers, Advisor Regulatory Affairs Pharma EU, Elanco Deutschland GmbH, May 21

Presentation = excellent. Very clear slides and the speed of delivery was perfect.
Speaker = excellent. Very knowledgeable and happy to discuss topics in depth if required

Rodney Cartmill, Head of Regulatory Affairs - New Products, Norbrook Laboratories Ltd, Nov 20

An interesting, informative and interactive two-day course which provided a clear overview and explanation of the most important changes that we can expect as a result of the 2019/6 Legislation. It is not easy to keep the audience interested while explaining a new law but Julian managed to do this excellently.

Kitty Ruigrok, DVM, Regivet BV, Dec 19

The main themes of the new Regulation were presented in a precise but detailed manner and this, coupled with the extensive knowledge and sympathetic manner of the speaker, make the course something special.

Heike Luckow, Regulatory Affairs, Bela-Pharm GmbH & Co. KG, Dec 19

Julian was a fantastic presenter, with excellent examples of real-life scenarios making a potentially dry course thoroughly enjoyable.

Jennifer Hynes, Quality Manager, Benchmark Vaccines Limited, Mar 19
