The seminar has helped me to start shaping my own voice of leadership, being confident of my strengths and figuring out how to work on improving my weaknesses. For my future, will be of significant positive impact on implementing effective leadership, particularly its continuous practice along the way. Ann did an excellent job in teaching us the manifold toolbox of proper leadership communication and always provided useful feedback on our performance during the training course!

Useful and interesting content. Engaging presenter who seemed to have a real commitment to making sure attendees learned. Very good at managing the room (i.e., not letting individuals take topics off track). Pace was perfect - just enough detail and time on each topic. Great facility. I dud bit find the advance/prep work helpful.

The content was very useful, the instructor was terrific. She provided concrete examples from her own experience that put the material into useful context and was extremely approachable - put the class at ease early on in the course - the handout and testing was extremely useful in assessing my own areas of strength and where I need to focus my energies in improving certain skills - overall I find the class extremely useful and have recommended it to several of my team members.
