Janet, I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful workshop on (communication skills and styles). I love overhearing the staff talk about the experience. I believe that all of them truly enjoyed the experience and learned valuable information about themselves and others. I am pleased because the physicians were also excited and want to make sure we meet as a whole at least two or three times a year now. This is a giant step forward for us.  I assume that you are going to send us an invoice which I actually look forward to paying. I hope that I can schedule another workshop with you sometime in the future.

I find the quality of a trainer sends a powerful message to folks in an organization. Janet’s creative and lively sessions with our supervisors convey that Whatcom County values and supports them in cultivating skills for handling challenging areas of their jobs. Our participants always report they find Janet’s presentations well-organized and inspiring. We definitely plan to invite her back on a regular basis!
