Brett conducted a training workshop on Windows Azure Platform @ Singapore, for Microsoft Partners, that I attended. It was to be a training & Brett related so well with the audience, made it extremely interactive & knew each one of our profiles & addressed accordingly, specific to each industry & region - hence a workshop. He makes the workshop complete by taking detailed feedback & conducting interviews after the workshop. Hence, an excellent trainer, very friendly person & pleasure to work with.
