Client Testimonial

"I was skeptical about online participation. [The online learning platform] worked great. The Miro board was surprisingly easy to use. In some ways, participation was enhanced (versus in class). Hopefully, the word gets out and more students have confidence in the online offering of this course."
Todd White

"We wanted to create an engaging instructor-led experience that is more interactive than what has traditionally been offered online. Based on the high level feedback at the end of the course I think we nailed it! Participants were saying they were a little skeptical coming in but at the end we heard “things were seamless” and it was “flawless”. From my perspective as an instructor I would say it was a fantastic experience, probably one of the best change management courses we have ever run. I’m really pleased with that and I look forward to teaching more of these virtual instructor-led courses."
