"Jay was a speaker for our Master's in Training and Development Professional Society event and we got to experience the Behavior Elements activity and had a great discussion about it! I think Behavior Elements is very intriguing, easy to understand, descriptive and relatable to on-the-job experiences, and provides the opportunity for self-reflection as well. It was a great event and I really enjoyed him taking the time to come out to speak with us!"
"Jay presented at an AmeriCorps conference on dealing with difficult people. He was a highly effective presenter, the material made sense, and I was able to use some of it later that day. I'd definitely attend more of his sessions and hope to benefit from the company's services moving into the future."
"Extremely informative and well-documented presentation. I could not believe the amount of good information that was delivered in a short time. Jay did an outstanding job of preparing for this presentation"
