5.0 stars Christian Greer's talent is unlimited. He is a fantastic PM instructor and what he brings to the table is considerable. I not only enjoyed his manner and the way he delivered the content, but I think the way he challenges the class to come up with solutions made this class a worth every cent. He gives his students real life examples. He provides a lot of sources. He makes a point to share ideas that are geared to each student. He is a great teacher. Christian would make anything he would teach interesting.Lisa LaChapelle
