A few words...

Lana, thank you so much for our "Team At Work" workshop.  This workshop was so valuable for the entire team helping us to communicate and understand each other so much better.  We are all more aware of our own selves as well as the needs of the people around us. 

Your presentation and knowledge of the course provided fun, valuable information in a comfortable atmosphere which gave me the results I was looking for.

My team and I thank you and will certainly plan another one in the near future.

"Your professional teaching and training methods put myself and staff at ease throughout the whole process of implementing a perfect transition period.


I was just audited by RECO and passed with flying colours... the inspection went so well the auditor stayed less than 2 hours going over everything.


What a relief and I recommend anyone who has an existing office or opening an office to call on your services to have the office running in the most efficient order."

"I wish to express my gratitude for your invaluable assistance.


Your coaching and mentoring helped me to overcome my fears and doubts about my Real Estate Exam and future career.  Your ability to simplify and organize the material made it easy for me to understand.


I wrote my Exam with the confidence and knowledge that I was very well prepared and of course I aced it.


I will be counting on your assistance for my next courses.


Thanks again,"

2009 EXIT Canadian Franchisee Conference


My special thanks to you for your wonderful presentation on the DISC system specific to the topic of leadership.  The DISC system is a foundation teaching principal at EXIT.  The expanded understanding of the DISC concepts, as they relate to leadership, broadened the scope of utilization of the program.  These new perspectives provided the opportunity for franchisees to be more effective in their dealings with their employees and, therefore their business.


We sincerely appreciate the time you spent to prepare this course and the enthusiasm that you brought to it.
