I have to tell you (nothing against the annual program in Orlando, which is the only mediator continuing education course I’ve taken), but you guys really knocked it out of the park. Fantastic job. I really appreciate the hands-on business approach. I will likely use you guys instead for the future, no slight to them, but I really appreciated the real world detail in this course. Thanks again for the help.

This is a quick thank you for the efforts you put in to your meditation seminars. Having been an attorney for over 30 years and a mediator for over 10, I have certainly participated in my fair share of continuing education. Yours is among the most informative, competent, and rewarding seminar(s) I have experienced.

I watched the section about imaging, and, as an MD, I thought you explained it all very clearly so that non-medical people should understand...
Joel K., Parkland, FL

You were great at responding even on the weekend! Remarkable.

I just want to let you know that Module 40 in which you discussed with Wayne X-rays and MRIs was my favorite presentation.
