What Your Peers Are Saying

Amal Candido, CAP

I found a lot of added value for this program, and it definitely has me thinking differently when planning an event in the future. The program had a lot of great information and resources to use and rely on, and the checklists and other tracking sheets that were shared will come in very handy to use instead of creating new ones or even reinventing the wheel.

Executive Assistant HUT 8 Mining

A course well-worth your time and efforts. Practical everyday methodologies to increase productivity and staying on track. A stellar instructor who truly cares about each individual and teaching methodologies that are quantifiable, immediately impactful and above all, avenues for individual success.

Executive Administrative Assistant, JTS Health Partners

Dexter Allen, MBA, CAP

This course was very informing and engaging. It allowed me to think outside the box and become more involved at work with the information that I was receiving from the facilitator. The information confirmed some of the information that I learned over the years, as well as think of new ideas to incorporate in my daily responsibilities. This course has given me additional confidence in my ability to excel and strive to become a great asset to my organization. I was able to ask any questions and was provided with excellent responses. This course is worth taking and the case studies were a hit.
