Course testimonial

"The course was a real eye-opener into the core areas we should be focussing on whilst conducting digital due diligence. I was previously unaware of the depth and breadth of company and market digital insight that can be obtained without any target company knowledge, all using clever digital tools. I will now strongly consider pure digital due diligence as a core part of future transaction processes"
