Don's professionalism, his wit and wisdom, and his ability to customize his Keynote Presentations, make him unique and highly effective for any organization. We have used him several times now, and the reviews just keep getting better!"
"Don was a great facilitator. He is clearly a SME on the topic and presented the material in a concise and engaging way. His stories were relevant to the industry and he had a deep understanding of the PM process. He solicited our direct feedback prior to the training to ensure he addressed our learning objectives throughout the class. It was a great way to guarantee a return on investment for everyone in attendance."
"I'm not sure how you did it, but you seemed to understand our industry better than many of the attendees. You knew the names, the players, the history, the current challenges... simply amazing! The effort you put into customizing your Keynote Presentation for our industry was very much appreciated. I can't ever recall our members being more pleased with a speaker!"
"Don Gilman's knowledge and real-world experience is second to none. It wasn't a general presentation, it was honed into where our problems are and what we need to address. A lot was learned, activities were beneficial, and I am already seeing results from our two-day workshop from individuals that we once thought were unreachable!"
"I learned so much from Don during this course! He made the course material come to life with stories from his incredible life and career experiences. Don was so engaging that I barely noticed that 8 hours had passed. When the course ended, I immediately went back to my team and told my manager and co-workers that they should definitely sign up for this class. I can't wait to use the tools that Don taught me at work and at home with my 6 year old!"
