Client Comments

Some of our client comments:

A superb keynote presentation and moderation that kept us through our pace during whole the day.

Richard Hoon
ROW Chairperson Global Leadership Conference
Young Presidents Organization / World Presidents Organization (YPO / WPO)

You quickly and perceptively understood our strong company culture. What you gave us was a better understanding of the group dynamics and a better way to benefit from unrecognized strengths, opening up important sources of talent and energy that we had not recognized. Even to this day your input still has an impact on how we solve problems and work together as a team.

Very suited to our group.

A great use of metaphors that we can really take back to us and use in the office.

Regional President MTV

My reflections of what you deliver to companies like us is the combination of the theme, which was fantastic, the experience you have in your team, and the atmosphere you create in the room which is great fun. That all brings to us a relevance to our business with the issues that we struggle with day-to-day.

Managing Director  & Head Economist
Citigroup USA

I have always approached outdoor learning activities with a degree of trepidation & cynicism however I must say that I was extremely impressed with the program from: the scale to the principles around which the activity was developed, to the briefing, debriefing. All of us could identify with some of the points being drawn out & relate them back to the workplace. Can't ask for much more than that.

Director of Business Development
GlaxoSmithKline  Australia

I know this will last in our peoples’ minds for many years to come. I was most impressed with your attention to detail and overall management of the training program. Feedback has been exceptionally positive, with comments such as "Will never forgot what we learnt",   "an unforgettable experience",  "life changing" and "spectacular in every way." I really appreciate the time and effort you put into making things "special" for our people.

All of us thoroughly enjoyed the content, your incredible way of teaching, and the pace it was presented.

Regional GM
Sheraton/Starwood

You managed to open the minds and attitudes of the most skeptical in the group  - and there were plenty. I think one measure of your success is that before the conference, many felt  the time allocated was too long, while afterwards, the same people said the program could have gone for longer.

Analyst
Citigroup Hong Kong

You and your team did an outstanding job. We had some very specific requests and some tight time restraints. You showed the utmost in flexibility and tailored the program to meet our needs. I feel confident that the camaraderie developed during the team building will have positive effects long into the future.
