I appreciated your suggestions, the resource material you distributed, and the follow up after the presentation. I can honestly say, that I've never worked with a speaker who cared so much about the success of our meeting."

BOMBARDIER MOTOR CORP. OF AMERICA Claude J. Joncas, Regional Sales Manager/Northeast US

You taught them how to motivate themselves and how to take charge of their activities. There has been a big change in their attitude as well. Through your course, this group has demonstrated an incredible positive attitude to change, and to their work. You have inspired them to reach for new heights and have given them tools to feel confident in the accomplishment of their goals.” U of O CO-OP, Carmen Poulin Brazeau, Director
“Well you did it again. Three years since our last Bob Urichuck program finds me even more satisfied and delighted that we scheduled you for an encore.
