What Others Are Saying

"Matt Shaw was an excellent instructor. Very engaging, his presentations were clear and focused. He encouraged group participation and discussion which I think we all appreciated. He also provided us many examples of tools such as knowledge identification, competency profiles, time management assessments and succession planning development. I have used one of the tools and implemented a change in staffing because of the outcome."
