Attendee Feedback

I have attended the first two webinars that CEP have hosted to date, along with a few from other engineers and consultants, in this period of lockdown.  I find the CEP webinars different from the others in the way that they are more practical and informative. They actually give the listener some answers and allow us to achieve practical results. Other webinars are more discussions on a subject that leave the listener with information but an inability to make even simple changes. James McPhie (Analyst) Nelson City Council
