Hesham S. Elabd, Vice President of Sales & Marketing - Abana Enterprises Group Company, Dubai

A lot of people believe they have what it takes within them to negotiate. Probably that is true to a great extent, but organizing the skills and turning it into a process rather than an emotional activity makes it more consistent with a higher probability. Kexxel Group was very organized and very punctual. I really appreciate that because time is of the essence. Found everything very positive and I enjoyed the two days. Although to tell you the truth, before coming here, I thought I’m too old for a 2 day class but I guess not! Thank you very much Kexxel Group! The practices presented were very apt. Jim was a perfect mix of humour and a professional presentation! Everyone from Kexxel Group was so pleasant.

Although the learning was done virtually, he excelled in explaining the risk management processes and the quantification of operational risks which was new and absolutely great knowledge for me to apply in my current organization. Thanks Dr. Mark!
