"I worked with Marylen for about 4 months now, we collaborate often on training program development. My experience with Marylen and Customized Training Solution is nothing short of wonderful. Marylen is extremely professional, smart and experienced in her field. She never stops the motion and knows how to make a start up successful. I have particularly enjoyed her "to the point" attitude, she managed our training in Manila in an effective, smooth yet highly detailed way. When I arrived on site, as a trainer, nothing was missing, the hotel team knew what they had to organize for the room to be set accordingly, I knew all participants names, I had absolutely no last minute unwanted surprises for 10 days thanks to Marylen and her team. The result was that we conducted a highly successful training session that pleased both the participants and the Hotel Management.
