Featured Speaker

Take it from our graduates.

“It was the best training I’ve ever attended in my 12 years of being a supervisor. Thank you, Bruce!”

“We were able to learn new skills and apply them, while in sessions, to real-life situations and utilize the feedback of other leaders to help determine solutions.”

“I loved how Bruce would introduce a subject and then immediately jump to role play. That helped me cement it in my mind.”
