This offsite exceeded all of my expectations.  Neil was outstanding, starting with his pre-offsite preparation, through his program design and delivery. Neil has a rare gift of making people feel comfortable and safe in the offsite experience.  I was amazed at how he got everyone (I mean everyone) out of their comfort zones and providing honest and productive feedback.  Succinctly said, we were a much better team as a result of Neil’s work."
—David Matlin, Athletic Director University of Hawaii
