Victoria Attoe, Human Resource & Administration Manager

"Our Employment Services Development Manager said, "This is the most exciting and action packed workshop I have ever attended."  Thanks Michael for your "How to deal with Negative and Difficult people without becoming drained" program.  Your knowledge and experience, together with your professional approach ensured the principles you shared were relevant to and easily adoptable by all participants. Your unique, energetic methods for content delivery were extremely effective and ensured all participants were "switched on" and "energised" for the entire session.  Participants really got heaps out of what you presented!  You have provided a toolbox to ensure participants can detach themselves from work issues and start not only each day, but each new appointment with a clear mind.  On a personal note, thank you for ensuring our dealings were trouble free, from the initial contact, to when you visited to deliver the training.  You did a fantastic job of customising your course to suit our needs. Your follow-up emails continue to be a hit with participants as well.  They have proven invaluable in assisting staff adopt and reminding participants about the principles and how to continue adopting the principles you shared, long after the training has been completed. Every staff member that attended the training has indicated that they took something positive away from it.  Well done and thank you."
