Testimonials

It was a pleasure having Brian present the 5 C’s to Crafting Powerful Communication to the Student Development Services staff of Prince George’s Community College. The staff was very receptive to his presentation. Not only was Brian knowledgeable about how to work through challenges while communicating, he was conscious of his audience and the way they would use the information. There was also a bonus factor for the staff. Brian is a community college graduate and his accomplishments provided a testament to the great work the staff does at the community college. The staff saw evidence that motivating and encouraging students has its rewards. We look forward to working with Brian again.
