I don’t think I was ever quite as nervous as before my new hire training week in London.  

I learnt so much during the week and the realistic role plays definitely helped prepare me for the challenges I would face once I got back into the field.

There are everyday trainers that think they have all the answers – and then there are best in class trainers who know YOU have all the answers and help you figure them out.

The groups Pat works with not only come to the solution on their own, but come away seeing HOW they got there

Marisa F

Pat’s training structure and overall leadership had a tremendous impact on the success of our company.

His genuine approach often found his student’s collaborating and diving deeper on training content well after the formal session was completed.
