Seminar Testimonials

I participated in my first MacFarlane’s seminar in 2016. I really enjoyed meeting people working on the same sector from another part of the world, we have shared a lot our respective experience. The technical presentations were interesting all along the seminar. I would like to thank Bill and his very nice team for this great time.
