I think Tom's experience and knowledge of the subject as an instructor is a huge benefit for the attendees. The only thing I would suggest is more examples, but I understand there might not be enough time.

The content was good. The take-home materials appear very comprehensive. In my opinion, there is 2 days worth of material condensed somewhat successfully (quickly) into 1 day.

The course has a lot of good information but it is a rush to fit it in during a 1 day session.

Overall, a very good course. Learning from how gas is produced all the way the the end users.

Tom is a very knowledgeable instructor, and his years of consulting shine through the course notes and lectures. The course is rather long for a one-day event, but it shouldn't be a problem with a large coffee ;) If you want to learn more about the finance side of the natural gas industry, this course is for you.

Good course to get a broad basic overview of how the gas market works, as well as a bit of inisght into some of the finer points. Not enough to take on a gas marketing role, but enough to be conversationally functional in the area.
