"As we continue to review and evaluate the recent Executive Briefing Conference, it is very evident it was the best EBC that has been offered. This is reinforced by the many emails we have received from the participants, indicating how beneficial it was to them and to their companies. We are also very pleased with the input from the evaluations and the ratings which you and other presenters received.
As our opening keynote, you did a good job of presenting a topic that will spur our customers to embrace innovation more readily. Frequently as woodworkers, we do not always understand the significance of innovation and your message was loud and clear on how important it is to our future success. Your approach to sharing some of the techniques for development, how to create an environment to cultivate & gather innovative ideas assisted us in not only understanding how it has progressed but better relay to "What's Next" in our companies.
Thank you again for all of the time and effort you devoted to this Executive Briefing Conference and for making another EBC a success." - Stiles Machinery, Inc.
