  • Two Thumbs Up!

    Michael’s seminar helped me define my role as an HR professional for my organisation. He also provided me with some valuable tips to modify my behaviour. Excellent seminar leader! Two thumbs up!

  • Eye-opening!

    Participant feedback was great. They most enjoyed the personality profiles and time management test. These were quite eye-opening! The case studies were well received. The entire content was clear and relevant to the sales team.

  • Outstanding value.

    I’ve attended a number of seminars costing a lot more money that did not come close to the value of this one.
