Courses: IUT225 and IUT235

On 11th of August 2008 I went to Poland to deliver the IUT225: EDM Overview and IUT235 Real Time Pricing to a group of people from Poland, Bulgaria, Check Republic and Russia.

Some of them was part of the same group I taught IUT230 Billing and Invocing for 4 days in April.
