What They Say About Getting People Right

When we met Trevor we were a non-profit in a very tough spot. Using Trevor’s tools, our NGO has gone from stuck to thriving. Recently we were chosen as one of the top 25 performing charities in the country (out of 86,000) by the Financial Post. He has helped us build a vision-driven, strategically sound, energized team; comfortable with a high degree of transparency and accountability.
Bernie Willock,
CEO FH Canada
We decided to implement Trevor’s strategies across the country in over 100 locations and over 2500 employees. The result has been a transformation of our culture. People’s lives have been positive impacted – professionally and personally. Morale is high and sales and profits are up as a result.
Daryl Verbeek,
President, VCA Canada
The roadmap laid out in these courses set our business up to quintuple in sales. We’ve learned how to fix ongoing personnel issues once and for all, attract top talent, and spend our time focused on results, not on internal staffing problems. I highly recommend it to you – it’s worked for us.
