The course surpassed my expectations.”

“Akhtar, First I wanted to thank you for an awesome couple of days. As I said the CBRA really put everything together for me. A little over 18 months ago after attending the CBRM & ITP seminar. I was well equipped to launch and develop our BCP program. In the last couple of days and with a bit more experience under my belt, I can definitely see a clearer path forward in further developing our program by using an auditors’ point of view.”
