  • Diego B., Senior Manager Jun 23, 2023

    A lot of relevant content in a short amount of time but delivered with grace. Examples and concepts are well connected to reality both for profit and non-profit situations. Strategic planning makes more sense now and I feel excited to apply it in my own organization!

  • Past Participant, Analyst Jun 23, 2023

    Instructor was great. Very polite, professional, and knowledgeable.

  • Scarlet S., SLSO Director Jun 23, 2023

    Richard is excellent. The materials were very helpful. A fair bit of content didn't apply to my role in the non-profit sector, which was true for half of our group's participants. While Richard made extensive efforts to relate the material to profit and non-profit sectors, the course description could have been more clear in this respect.
