“Stellar performance! When I watched you both (Michael Whelan and Rozanne Weissman) in action last night, it reminded me of what First Class is all about…great information given in a dynamic format with pithy examples. I loved how you involved the students with the games, the apple martinis, and the questions. So, thank you both for all your hard work and creative input. The preparation and thought behind what you presented was most evident.”
