"Because Teamwork is a critical core competency at Lumsden & McCormick, it became part of our Lumsden & McCormick University. Having no internal experts with the credibility to deliver such a key piece of training, I looked outside the organization and met with Michael after he was recommended by a friend of the firm.
From there, it became apparent that he was eminently qualified to provide this development experience – and he brought an energy to both the development AND the delivery of the training that I would not have expected when I first went looking for a trainer! He was enthusiastic and it was evident from our interactions that he is passionate about the subject and how – when done right – teamwork drives an organization to excellence.
He was such a pleasure to work with also – very easygoing and receptive to all of our "well, this is what our firm is like…" caveats and concerns.
Here’s a few of our attendees’ comments:
- "Mike has a lot of energy and was very engaging. He was good at keeping our attention!"
"Great presenter – very dynamic and interesting to listen to."
"Mike opened my mind to new ideas."
"Good job working with a tough group! Talking to a bunch of accountants about their feelings is not easy."
Thank you again, Mike, for a terrific start to our 2010 L&M University – can’t wait to have you back!"
