 Below is some of the feedback from a two-day seminar held in August 2017. 

Presenters fantastic. Presented with a good pace giving relevant examples to the point, to put information in context.

Presented in a way I could understand especially as I am new to party walls.

Very well presented course with great detail in connection with the Party Wall Act, with regard to carrying out notices & awards.

Extremely informative. I hope this will stand me in good stead professionally. I hope to become an active member of the FPWS in the future.

Really good engaging speaker, very good examples, gained a lot. Very Professional.

Excellent course I will recommend to Hackney to send the other officer to attend. Very informative.

Excellent presentation. From the thousands my organisation has wasted funding on, this has to be the best course.
