What would you say to someone considering Parkside?
"It's live-changing. Working in corporate, I always had to learn a skill, a market, but I missed the theoretical style of learning. Now I analyze and take a more critical look. It helps me stand up for my beliefs and feel confident because I have the knowledge to back them up. I have a much broader view of the world."
