"I first attended one of Agnes’s sessions several years ago at NYC SharePoint Saturday. I have used the knowledge I gained in that short hour and a half a number of times since in preparing solutions for clients. I attended the 2-day course thinking that if I learned that much in an hour with Agnes, what would I get out of 2 days? I was not disappointed. Everything we discussed and the tasks we performed were relevant and immediately useful in my job. It also gave me the opportunity to pass along the knowledge to my co-workers. I have often recommended SearchExplained.com to both co-workers and clients."
