"An excellent presentation, very clearly explained and enjoyable at the same time. Has given me confidence in using this software."

RAF Culdrose

"I am writing to say thank you for organising my FileMaker training day; I learned so much with my trainer, Nick, and have come away with such a great database. It delighted both the Director and my job share partner. I feel I have left with a great amount of knowledge that can help the business immensely. I learned more than I thought I would and would like to thank Transmedia for being so helpful!"
