Past Attendees Say It Best

The workshop was very helpful in introducing new risk management concepts that we can apply to our business. The presenters were accessible to answer specific questions related to our business.

Excellent ‘Hedging 101’ seminar. Very thorough but user friendly content and presentation from well-experienced presenters. Useful for a scrap processor to gain a critical tool to manage risk in any market conditions.
