“Thank you again for your invigorating Board best practices session yesterday. I’ll now say that I got my undergraduate degree in Board Governance through the Institute of Corporate Directors, and my graduate degree in attending your session on Best Practice Board Governance.” David Wexler – Board of Directors of CancerCare Ontario,
“David’s board governance training is an excellent way to leverage a nonprofit’s limited training resources to train an entire board. The workshop content in one day mirrored content I spent 3 days plus travel time at a [costly] Rotman School of Business course. ” Wes Moore, Board Chair, Algoma Children’s Aid Society, Ontario
“Really engaging and interesting for a topic [board governance] that can be quite dry. Today was really informative, I am going away with a lot of “to-do’s” I actually can do! Thank you so much for making a tough topic manageable.” Karen Chezick, Clinic Manager, Agassiz Medical Centre, Manitoba
“I have attended numerous sessions over the years. Normally governance training is stagnant at best. Yours was more than the opposite, it was actually entertaining. Thank you.” Ronald Boerchers, National Director, Holstein Canada
“Exhilarating, motivating and a very good team-building experience for the entire board and the staff. ” [Strategic Plan including Board Training] Chair-person, New Starts Women’s Shelter, Red Lake, Ontario
