"The high quality of the SRS Intelligence
seminars surprised me after my disappointments
with CI training given by others. I
was extremely satisfied with the instruction,
which used real case studies. There
was great interaction between the instructors
and my fellow participants. The instructors
engaged each of us and helped us look
at our own business and the competitive
threats in a different way, in essence
giving each of us a wake up call on
how we analyze the competition."

"What could be more timely in light
of the events of September 11th than
a conference on "Intelligence for Managing
Overseas Risks"? SRS was not only able
to tackle this complex and touchy issue
with great skill, but was also able
to assemble a roster of top-notch speakers
from the business and academic world
who clearly and candidly laid out the
issues and challenges. How refreshing
to find this timely subject handled
in such a thoughtful and thought-provoking
manner. Congratulations SRS on a job

"I attended the SRS Intelligence full-day
analysis seminar and was extremely delighted.
The seminar was notable because of the
caliber of the trainers, marked by the
highest levels of experience including
government intelligence, academia, and
commercial R&D. Even more remarkable
was the fact that these folks were active
participants throughout the day. The
day provided a lot of information, both
from the presentations and the group
discussions, where the attendees were
encouraged to offer their views. I found
the seminar extremely valuable and enlightening.

"The Intelligence Analysis for Business
Seminar has succeeded in challenging
both the novice as well as the CI professional.
The thoughtful planning of coursework
provided the structure I needed as an
information professional unfamiliar
with the demands of business intelligence
analysis. I welcomed the lectures and
presentations by experts in the field.
At the same time, there was enough flexibility
built into the seminar that impromptu
discussions among more experienced participants
provided the challenge that they were
looking for. A thoroughly enjoyable

"The Advanced Business Intelligence
Seminar expanded my toolbox of skills
but more importantly, it enabled me
to gain a new perspective on current
situations and problems. For advanced
practitioners, this seminar was a good
antidote against one of the biggest
pitfalls of intelligence work: looking
at the same thing in the same way."

"I attended the Intelligence Analysis
for Business Seminar because 'analysis'
is the most neglected part of the competitive
intelligence process. My inquiries led
me to SRS Intelligence, with high recommendations
for their speakers and process. I was
not disappointed. The analysis process
was addressed from several perspectives
and I came away with some highly 'useable'
tools and techniques. This is excellent,

"The conference on
"Intelligence for Managing Overseas
Risks" was a good top-level overview
of potential risks and considerations
a company should take into account prior
to entering developing markets. The
presentation on Saudi Arabia was fascinating
and I thoroughly enjoyed both of the
very knowledgeable speakers on China
and the Asian Market. I found the organization
of the day to be great - not too long,
plenty of breaks, thorough material
in the binder."

"Intelligence for Managing Overseas
Risks" was both very informative and
enjoyable. All the speakers were clearly
top experts in their fields. The range
of topics enhanced my knowledge on subjects
previously experienced and opened my
eyes to issues that will confront me
and my company. The casual, open atmosphere
and the speakers' openness to group
participation made this a forum for
sharing experiences. Highly recommended
for anyone involved in risk management
