What Clients Say
"Your training has had a huge impact. At a guess the training of 8-10 people that day has lead to the use of your tools to at least 500 people plus! Your training workshop 'moving bodies moving minds' has certainly done that. It opens minds, ensures everyone contributes, helps people think differently, shares different views and develops ideas." Dawn Cordy
"Whenever I point one of my Agile coach friends to your material they are wowed - big time! And these are people who live and breathe 'facilitation'." Nancy Van Schooenderwoert, Lean-Agile Partners, Inc., President
