Blair Cook is one of my favorite instructors on Illumeo, so I seek out his courses. Once again, he didn't let me down. This course is especially interesting because it is recent and relevant to the new normal of business life. I took away 2-3 ideas that I'd like to implement with my team. Good, fun course!

Great course and some good takeaways in adjusting for the pandemic business world as well as realizing all of the opportunities (not just the negatives) that have popped up as well.

Some of the material was common sense also a little outdated since this was made more than 6 months ago.
