"Property Overview provided 'an Introduction to Property' course to our team of researchers, senior directors and sales and marketing professionals. We covered a lot of ground in one day and were delighted with the quality of the course. It was particularly helpful to be able to work with the tutors beforehand to tailor the content to our employees’ learning needs. As a result of this course our team can now better understand and address our customers’ needs and, in turn, target and communicate with them more effectively. Many thanks!"
