"I was very pleased with ESRS (CSRD) Reporting course since it allowed for a flexible curriculum that met the needs and goals that I was pursuing. My mentor Dr. Kurniko was very knowledgeable and generous with his resources, both time and material. I can recommend this for someone that is in need of guidance and discussion in depth about the CSRD directive, not only for someone that is in need of an introduction."
