Anonymous: The presenter was fantastic - ideas were presented well with concrete examples. In addition, the checklist that was handed out as a supplement facilitates and drives home everything that was covered in the presentation. I look forward to more courses on this topic.

Anonymous: While the information is useful, I believe that this session is better suited for novice CRC's and particularly those working under one PI. It would be helpful to have more guidance on the target audience. Also, it is beneficial to have advanced notice of building access limitations.

Anonymous: I think the course was helpful to start getting in the mindset of "Managing Up." Nicholas Giordano was a very strong presenter - He was able to present these ideas concisely, clearly, and in a way that can be easily replicated and applied to our individual roles. I also appreciated the checklist hand-out. This course made me look forward to signing up for the "Effective Communication" course. Many thanks
