Encourage people to take this course as a starting point to preparing their first GRI report. It would have saved me a lot of time and confusion had I started with this course. The course was so helpful!

Overall, really, really, really loved the course, the location and the instructor. I have already recommended it to some peers!
— Power Industry Client
The training was very engaging and educational. I was impressed with the passion at which Pamela taught the material. I go to a lot of training and most of them could be very dry. The interaction kept everything fresh and dynamic. We will definitely have other team members train with Pamela and KERAMIDA.

Pam is an exemplary trainer. She combines her knowledge of GRI with extensive knowledge and experience in GRI and other sustainability-related standards/guidelines. Pam creates a welcoming and highly productive training environment. She took the extra effort to customize the examples and exercises with additional specifics applicable to our industry of interest, the air transportation industry.
— GRI Certified Standards Course Participant
Our class was small (# of attendees), which allowed us to ask many questions specific to our sectors and discuss topics at length. The instructor was very helpful in providing examples and case studies.
— GRI Certified Standards Course Participant
Pamela Griesemer is an excellent instructor. The comparative information about different reporting frameworks was very useful. Some more details on the IR framework and how it differs from GRI would be nice to include in the future.
— GRI Certified Standards Course Participant
The class was very useful and informational. I’m happy that I attended and I think it will help me and my team as we assess our next level sustainability reporting.
— Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability Analyst, Major Pharmaceutical Firm
Our instructor, Pamela Cooper-Griesemer is an excellent instructor. Her professionalism is admirable and instruction abilities are very effective. Pamela brings real-life experience to the classroom instruction with many examples from a large variety of industry types to create real-life examples and make the instructional content even more meaningful. Pamela is a thorough listener and would concisely guide our understanding of how the GRI applications apply to our business sectors and the companies we work with for reporting. Pamela enhanced our total industry knowledge, sustainability reporting knowledge and vocabulary overall. Pamela’s guidance through the exercises and using real reports from companies we identified with as competitors or peers was also invaluable... I would highly recommend Pamela Cooper-Griesemer of KERAMIDA for instructional training of the GRI Standards. Thank you!!!
