There’s no one quite like David. He engages our people and makes them think. People become so immersed in his programs that they don’t even realize the paradigm shift that is happening as he teaches. He is a vital part of our professional development initiative

Included in the workshop is a discussion on proper hiring practices, progressive discipline, and reductions in staff.
