Michael, Thank you so much for your help! You are a lifesaver for Designers in Dealerships! You ROCK, Michael Beall!

I just wanted to tell you that our 2 training days were the best training days I have spent in my 23 years here!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you a million times over!

Thank you, sir … I must say that you are the best teacher of AutoCAD I have ever had. Had I had you in that class during college, it would have been so-o-o-o different.

The AutoCAD Toolbelt seminar | Metrocon11, Dallas – August 2011

I’ve never enjoyed any kind of training as much as I’ve enjoyed the two sessions I’ve now shared with you. You just make everything so much fun!

Carla Schroeder, Registered Interior Designer business office systems, Design team leader, Corporate Accounts

It’s wonderful to be trained by someone who understands what a furniture dealer designer does on a daily basis.

You are the Jimi Hendrix of AutoCAD!!!

If I have to spend two days in training, YOU are the instructor I want!

AutoCAD Seminar Feedback

I learned more in the first 3 hours with you, than I did in 3 days at our previous AutoCAD training.

Michael pinpointed the usual struggles of using AutoCAD in a furniture dealership & had solutions to our problems!

He has a wide array of knowledge (not just AutoCAD & CAP), to make every individual more efficient! That alone was worth every penny. This is good stuff; extremely good stuff!!
