About our trainer

"Paul did an amazing job at engaging everyone with the content, his real-life examples and experiences gave context many in the training haven't seen or thought of before and it was extremely valuable. He also didn't sugarcoat things which I feel was so important to really understand the scope of the conversations. He was extremely open and inviting to questions and facilitated amazing discussions through the entire session." - Previous Participant
