- Who should attend?
I learned, through group interactive exercises, specific tools that I can use to tackle any problem solving challenge that calls for a little creativity. I left the seminar and immediately applied one of the solutions from an exercise. This saved me countless hours and frustration, while solving a challenge that has been holding up my strategic planning for the upcoming fiscal year. I highly recommend attending Mike’s seminars.
