  • Review:
    It has been a hat-trick, three consecutive times with CGRCP, CRS and now CORP, that I was overwhelmed with the quality of trainer and training arranged by LEORON. I look forwarded for the upcoming sessions that I have scheduled with LEORON and I recommended to all concerned that you will not regret an ounce. Thank you LEORON for your counseling and arranging such outstanding and quality driven sessions. -Head of IS Governance Section, Riyadh Bank, KSA

    Jason’s approach is to allow the exploration of ideas and concepts while still sticking to the agreed material and timescales. The addition of real life experience really brings to life the application of OCEG principles. -2M Consultancy Ltd, Reading, UK

  • Review:
    Jason is an amazing facilitator with real-life experiences and insight that enable all of us to grasp complex concepts in meaningful and applicable ways. The course I took recently provided so much more than I thought possible regarding GRC Fundamentals. Having now attended the GRC Fundamentals course with Jason has opened up new professional relationships that extend to foreign countries and have also expanded my understanding and command over the content. You can always read about subjects, but being in a class room environment and sharing actual on the ground experience with other participants added dimensions to the course that made attending valuable beyond measure. I would highly recommend attending a GRC Fundamentals course with Jason and in considering his team as a valuable resource in advancing such programs across your organization. -Ernst & Young, San Francisco, US
  • Review:
    This course is good for both beginner and the experienced professional. Being experience professional, my objective from the course was to assess my knowledge of risk assessment with other industry professional and best practices. After the training, I feel I achieve the desired objective. The training provide you a platform to interact with other industry professional, share knowledge, learn from their and the trainer experience. I learn certain techniques from peer discussion and from the profound experience of the trainer as well. The trainer play a vital role in engaging the entire class in fruitful discussion throughout the session. -Corporate Office, HSA Group, Level 37, Vision Tower, Business Bay, Dubai, UAE
