As the head of the education committee [of this hospital], I will bring this new information about the brain back to our unit to help our preceptor and education members.

Workshop participant, Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

Your talk hit home in addressing issues I face daily in my job, helping adult students adapt to returning to higher education.   

Kathleen Mills, Enrollment Services Advisor, Ashford University

People are still talking about the presentation…facilitators and staff members are passing on feedback that they received…and they have all been glowing and positive.

Rachelle Tulloch, Australian Institute of Company Directors, Melbourne

The best part was that [the participants] worked in teams …[they were] free to create and experiment. 

Harvard Center for Hellenic Studies, Nafplion, Greece.

The brain workshop was our most well-received all year! Participants continue to report how they have applied the concepts with powerful results. An excellent learning opportunity for anyone who works with adult learners, in any setting!

Center to Advance Education for Adults, DePaul University

Thank you for your excellent presentation…. Participants benefited enormously from your contribution, fresh ideas, and exciting group activities.
