“Dan Menden’s leadership and training skills are the best I have experienced. He is clearly an expert in what he does, and yet his communication style makes learning from him very easy. He is very engaging, insightful and compelling in the way he delivers training. His ability to draw a group into learning provided an enriched experience for me. I left his class excited, ready to implement the tools gained as I return to my training leader role.”

“Dan Menden is one of the best trainers I have had in my professional career. I was fortunate to have him as a virtual instructor for a four day virtual class. In the unique platform of the virtual world it can sometimes be difficult to engage students and keep the content fun. Dan was a master at not only keeping all content fun and relevant to us students, but he also kept his finger on the pulse of the classroom to ensure breaks and activities were well used. I truly enjoyed Dan’s training and more importantly I learned and have applied what was taught in the training.”
