An in depth introduction to EPO filing and and over view of patent filings by PCT...I really enjoyed that she was able to provide popular examples so that we could make sense of the concepts being shared

Lucero Ricord, Attorney, Estudio Benedetti

It was very professional, the content being just right and not overwhelming for newbies to this field, like me. I enjoyed the presentation and JoAnna did a sterling job in presenting it.

Melane Wilke, Patent Administrator,

I wanted to deepen my knowledge regarding the formalities procedures at EPO, especially regarding non-common cases, and now I am much more confident with them. I liked the presentations of Ms Schmitz and Mr Mulder very much and the way they transmit their immense knowledge about EPO procedures. I found the course very stimulating and it made me want to acquire more and more knowledge about the procedures we apply every day in our work.

Federica Lena, Patent Assistant, Marben s.r.l.

I thought JoAnna was very knowledgeable and approachable and was able to answer a lot of questions. I thought overall it was a great and meaningful learning experience.

Nicole Kemp, Secretary, Hoffmann Eitle

Océane Marchal, , Vesuvius Group SA

Given my very poor experience in this topic, I actually did not know upfront what to expect. JoAnne immediately made me feel at ease, she is very friendly, very much experienced and really pleasant to listen to.

Jessica Vanderlinden, IP Assistant, KU Leuven Research & Development

JoAnna was very engaging and we felt at ease when asking questions.
