What others say about the training

You brought a fresh outlook, great experience, and enthusiasm to our workshop. Thanks for sharing your wisdom with us.
We enjoyed your impromptu training session this morning in place of another speaker who failed to show up. If you can do that well without preparation we can hardly wait for your scheduled session that you have had time to prepare.
The recruiting skills workshop opened my eyes to the possibilities of using volunteers and how to find them. I began to use the skills the minute I got home.
As a new board member I had no idea of my obligations and responsibilities. Your session will ensure that my term on the board is enjoyable for me and the other board members.
Not everyone can capture and hold a room the way you did yesterday. I enjoyed your advice, examples, and stories. It is good to hear from someone who has been there and back and survived to tell about it.
Who knew all the things that volunteers do in our community? Your presentation clearly outlined the role and value of volunteers in our society and how we can recognize, support, and reward them.
Until your workshop the Policy Governance Model was a complete confusion to me. Your clear examples and keen appreciation of the basics and subtleties of the model left me in a much better position to lead my board.
