Emil K. Everett, President and Founder

"I walked in unhappy with the idea of having to take the course. I looked it as a time stealer in an already overworked environment. It didn't take long to realize that it wasn't going to be one of "those" classes. I really enjoyed this and feel I walked away with a wealth of information. Emil made it great for all of us."
