EXCELENT [sic] INSTRUCTOR. THE BEST. PERIOD.
Brad has worked with our senior executive team to move us from reviewing volumes of reports in the hope of understanding the core problem, to clearly identifying root causes and executing specific tactics for improvement. Our improved business discussions and performance results speak to the impact of Brad’s work with our team. We now have a common language for identifying and correcting problems using data. (Senior Executive, Fortune 50 Financial Services Company)
Perhaps the best guest lecturer I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. Got the point across in a straightforward way that sticks.
I appreciate Brad for being open and bold in his feedback. I appreciate he gave us his contact information in case we have questions afterwards. Very dedicated instructor =)
Brad was amazing! He had complete control of the subject and of the group. He was even able to regain our attention after a fire drill.
Amazing! Brad was super engaging and entertaining. I loved his principles and the examples to have them resonate. He was relevant to our work and our company. I will reference his guide for a long time. Looking forward to seeing how fellow CDMs have applied his principles.
