“No one learns as much about a subject as one who is forced to teach it.”

After the first session, the distributors did not hide their satisfactions over the performance of the outstanding speakers, during the break. The second segment continued after the lunch break. The speakers continued in the same tempo. They charged the distributors with the tactics and how the network marketing should be understood and mastered.At the end of the session, the distributors continued to express their heart-felt gratitude to Edmark for the knowledge acquired and for distinguishing itself from other networking companies as they all cheered up all the speakers.Finally, the speakers were presented with a certificate of appreciation by Ms. Maureen Oguamah, the marketing In Charge while the seminar came to a halt with closing invocations of Christian and Muslim.
