[testimonial name=”P. Smith” avatar=”male” image=”” image_border_radius=”” company=”Speciality Hospital of Washington at Capitol Hill” link=”” target=”_self”]I appreciate an organization that is willing to share information for free. Those that have little to give keep what little they have close. However when you are willing to share for free, there is more to be had and they are truly at the top of their field.[/testimonial][/testimonials]

Allowing questions to be asked during the presentation and discussion to occur enhanced the value because we could tie it back into issues we are currently facing.[/testimonial][/testimonials]
