All seminars can be presented either on-site or as a webinar.

Michael has been presenting CAD seminars to the A&D community, facility departments and the contract furniture industry since 1982 and on AutoCAD since 1990. A popular speaker, Michael has presented at numerous trade shows, and for several years at Autodesk University. At AU
