    Michel was a very good educator and kept us motivated. He knows his information very well! It made you think what kind of personality you have and helped by knowing others personality. I will use it to deal with clients and know where they are coming from.

    I thought the content was great, and our instructor (Michel Bedard) was fabulous. The one area of improvement is that I think this class should be covered over 2 days. We were really rushed in the afternoon and there were areas we wanted to discuss more.

    Learnings were very tangible. Facilitator was strong and engaging. Energy and pace of session was ideal. Great story telling abilities. He got everyone involved and was extremely adept at the subject topic. Content is applicable to use back in the workplace.
