    hi, this is context to the question I have been waiting. I did meet Mr. Girsih Mistry in an exhibition and I had long communication with him regarding weekends long batches for people who are working . I take care of Sales & Marketing and have no time during weekdays to get my passion to next level. Incas eyou start weekend batches, you would get people with great potential plus there fame as they would tel more 500 people who are working and plus you also get faculty as some of them want to take classes only on weekends. Incase nay help is required in setting up the base..please approach I would help in doing sale & Marketing for this. Without any charge..haah
