Trainer Profile

Mark Hayward

During this highly informative one-day course I go through letters of credit in simple terms, making the process easy to understand and work with. I ensure that participants appreciate what makes a good letter of credit and the associated best practice approach to working with them.

Having worked in credit roles for many years and having advised many individuals and organisations, I know what works and the pitfalls to avoid. My participants feel confident going back into the workplace that they really know how to apply what they have learnt in practical terms.
