FIDE Trainers’ Seminar 
As some participants stated, it was a joyful and quite educational seminar. A sample from the feedback of the participants is illuminating:
GM Grivas, I am an employee of the Department of Education under the School Sports Events and  Activities Unit (SSEAU). The SSEAU handles the school sports program of the Department and manages the conduct of Palarong Pambansa wherein Chess is one of the sports events. In addition tothis, the SSEAU also conducts seminar and training for Physical Education teachers and coaches every year. This is to update or refresh the teachers and/or coaches on the latest development of their respective sports and on what to teach their students and athletes. As an International FIDE Arbiter, I am part of the training staff for Chess.This program of the World Chess Federation, the Seminar for Accredited FIDE Trainers which wasdesigned to educate and accredit Chess Trainers in the international method of teaching chess tovarious levels of students and ages, will not only benefit me, but the Department of Education, theteachers, coaches and most of all the student-athletes. If given the chance to secure the most sought after “FIDE Trainer and/or FIDE Instructor titles”, the knowledge that I have acquired from thisSeminar will be conveyed to my fellow Chess trainers, teachers and coaches of the different schools from the 17 regions and will eventually be taught to our students especially the Chess lovers. IA Edmon Prado Dear GM Grivas,Thank you for everything. The seminar was very instructive and entertaining with your anecdotes and  jokes. I hope we will meet again in the future. Regards IM Jimmy LiewThank you so much GM Efstratios for sharing with us this wonderful experience and knowledge. Hopeto see you again by the time I will be upgrading to the next level. Thank you so much! NM Rudy IbanezSir Grivas,By now you are probably reading this from Dubai! I just wanted to take this opportunity, on behalf of my husband (IM Idel Datu) and myself, to say thank  you for a very insightful and interesting learning experience! Your lessons, lectures, and anecdotes gaveus new insights to and appreciation for chess training.We hope in turn that you've enjoyed your stay in the Philippines and return again someday either for leisure or to spread more of your trainer-wisdom. Best Regards, Chiara Datu
