It was all perfect.

Reem Sultan Salim Al Habsi, Legal Associate, Oman Post, Sep 19

I was hoping to enhance my skills when it comes to drafting legal contracts and to have in-depth knowledge on the key clauses in a contract. I believe that this was accomplished through attending the course. The content was very valuable. Presentation was simple and to the point. Speaker was knowledgeable and made the very complicated topics fun and exciting.

Ibrahim Ahmed Al Balushi, Legal, Oman Post, Sep 19

I am now better equipped to understand the confidentiality clauses, to better approach arbitration clauses and negotiation skills (body language and how to reach an agreement in regards to price, for instance). The speaker has a lot of experience to share and I particularly liked the practical workshops.

He [the speaker] made the learning atmosphere very interesting with workshops and practical examples and role plays. A very detailed and extensive course with a very useful content.
