Here are a few comments from previous attendees:

"The Survey in Practice Roadshow was excellent and possibly the most informative two days CPD I have ever had."
Stephen Berg, Stephen Berg Associates

 

 "I attended both of these recent events in Birmingham on Interiors and Exteriors, and just wanted to say how good I thought the event was, and especially pay credit to Larry Russen.  In my 15 years in the profession I can honestly say that he is the best speaker (in terms of his depth of knowledge, skilled delivery, and charisma) I have experienced at a CPD event, and is a real credit to the RICS."
Toby Ryder, Pinnacle Professional Services Ltd

"The roadshows are excellent, I have attended for the last two years in Cambridge and it makes a refreshing change to be able to complete all my formal CPD on days where all the subjects are relevant to me."
Mark Zimmermann, Landmark surveyors and Valuers Ltd
