What our clients say about us 

It was a very well run training course, with useful practical exercises.

Kamal was a good course facilitator and leader, quietly 

encouraging and very professional. The structure and flow of the day 

was well balanced with examples that are relevant to the business we are

in. I would recommend this course to others and consider other 

relevant training in the future.

I have looked into other courses geared to the publishing industry and I

have found CTC's course unique on price (very well-priced for the service

provided), convenience (in terms of being able to use a day instead of

having to go overnight) and content (gearing to real-life publishing

company situations).  The course was extremely well structured and all of

the materials provided were of high quality and very clear and concise.

We have already recommended Carlton Training & Consulting to others. 

We are keen to use their services again and we are interested in an in-

house session for our staff. It was an excellent course for us as new

small publishers and our team are all excited about the possibility of

having the training too!
