How Would You Describe Your Training Style?

“I’m committed to the idea that learning should be engaging and, whenever possible, fun! High energy, high content and highly experiential with a focus on real world application.”

What Do You Like Most About Training?

“The way I see it, there is nothing more exciting and important than learning!  Knowledge and skills empower us to be happier and more successful in every aspect of our lives. As a trainer and facilitator, every day I wake up excited! Every day, I have the extraordinary honor, privilege and challenge of creating learning environments that are safe, experiential, collaborative, fun. It’s a thrill to see that “light” go on in someone’s eyes…knowing that they just “got” something that will quite literally transform how they interact with others both professionally and personally from that day forward. What could be better than this?! This is my “WHY”. This is what I love to do more than anything else!”
