What Clients Say
"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
"Roger is highly professional and highly respected in the field of Experiential Learning and Management Development. He has successfully worked with senior faculty at Ashridge Business School on two occasions and his techniques are widely used in the organisation." Angela Jowitt
"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
"The active reviewing techniques Roger presented have really revolutionized my whole approach to adventure based learning... of far greater impact was Roger's personal philosophy and his immensely positive approach." Chan Yuen-Li
"Roger's active and creative reviewing skills are the absolute cornerstone of our work in facilitating team and leadership development at Azesta ... our clients are continually praising the interesting, creative and active reviewing techniques that we use." Shirley Gaston
"I recommend Roger and his work with reviewing. He is one of the finest facilitators I know. His reviewing method has revolutionised my own work, and it keeps on being an inspiration." Jacob Lindeblad
"We have used many of your reviewing tools and transfer strategies in our programs already, very effective and innovative! Our clients like it, we like it… my favorite is Metaphor Map, which I used a lot as last summarize activity in my program with fantastic effects!" Susan Zhu
"Roger showed the capacity to adapt quite easily to our Chilean culture. As a result we had an excellent and memorable training. 100% of the Roger“s work was applicable and practical and very clever and based in deep knowledge and experience." Camilo Mendoza
"Roger knows more about how to turn experience into learning than anyone I know, or know of. His particular brand of creativity--always seeing multiple ways to look at things, plus deep experience and thoughtful, research-based approach make him second to none in his field." William Spencer
"We looked long and hard for a facilitator to work with our team... All approaches to Roger came back with a thoughtful and insightful response. We felt certain we could work with Roger ... and we would not hesitate to work with Roger again." Sharon Naylor
"Roger is a world class master at evoking wise action from groups. If you wish your groups and teams to take even wiser and even more effective action, I strongly recommend getting to know Roger personally." Tim Pearson
"I have seen Roger work across cultures with a natural ease that is inspiring. It is hard to find an equal combination of modesty and excellence in experiential education or training." Jac Rongen English pages at rongen.com
"Roger is the world leader in reviewing and experiential learning... He changed the way people in South Africa think about outdoor and indoor activities and taught us how to add value to any activity." Roelf Opperman
