We conducted a 5-day Workshop for Real Image Media Technologies aimed at improving the financial, business and analytical capabilities of the middle-management team.  The participants were located in Chennai, Mumbai and Delhi and the sessions were conducted through video conferencing.

As part of the Workshop, we also conducted an MS-Excel familiarity session to make the participants comfortable in using Excel for their analysis.
