  • "  Gives me ideas/strategies to apply to real life, not just text book (school).  "

  • "  I liked the small group setting, friendly atmosphere, and that all participants came from a different field of work and shared their experiences with the group.  "

  • "  What a rewarding learning opportunity. This course gave me what I needed to bring success to my organization & my career.  "

    Sherritt International Corporation (recently promoted from GM Operations, Cuba)

  • "  I liked the fact that everybody that attended had the same problems and as a group, we discussed ways that we would handle them when we got back to the office. It gave you a good perspective on how to handle problems.  "

  • "  Basics were covered in a number of categories. I learned things that would have taken me years to discover or realize on the job.  "

  • "  I liked how the theory tied in well with practical experience. I was able to take away many tools to implement at work.  "

  • "  What I liked most about this course was the instructor because she made what can potentially be perceived as "fluffy" material very interesting by way of how she delivered the material. She used good examples and due to her vast experience in the field (and in delivering such courses, I'm sure) she was able to spontaneously come up with good suggestions as to how to handle specific situations the class questioned her on.  "

  • "  There was lots of interaction. The small group allowed more time for in depth discussions.  "

  • "  Excellent program, would consider my direct reports for this program.  "

    John Montgomery
    Volvo Trucks Canada Inc.

  • "  The course offered good information with solid examples.  "
