Mr.Abdi did a really great job and provided us with case studies on the lease modifications which helped me be engaged in webinar. He made the topic seem very interesting for the listeners."


Valuable information shared by Abdi & Rachel. Very new to this information but they explained it in a very simplified and easy manner.


Abdi did an incredible job of tackling such a complex topic of GASB in such a short period of time. It is definitely a course worthy of the 1 hour investment of your time. Regardless of your title or level in your organization, I would encourage everyone to attend to this course and take it to heart. Exceptionally well done!


The information provided by Mr.Ali was very insightful. The case Study of lease modification which he discussed in this webinar helped me better understand of the topic.


I actually do not have to perform lease modifications in my present position, however, the presentation was informatitive.
