“I enjoyed the training session with you very much - Thanks for coming out to Wisconsin, especially considering the alternatives :). The 1/2 day session was incredibly helpful. There were so many things that I was able to take away and immediately use.
Thanks again, and I hope to learn from you again “

-HR Group Director , Boston Scientific
“Thank you for a wonderful week of learning.
I don't know if I expressed strongly enough how much we appreciate everything that you have done to help us be better leaders. You've really helped us see the importance of self awareness so we all can improve. We won't let you down!
It was our pleasure to take you to dinner last night, it was just a very small token to let you know how much we really do appreciate you leaving your family to join ours for a week. It was truly a joy!! Thanks for being who you are and to be so willing in sharing it with others!!! You are truly an inspiration!”
-Learning & Development Manager, LandsEnd
“I wanted to thank you again for the Basic Presentation Skills course you taught this week. You eliminated the nervousness with your knowledge of the subject and humor. Furthermore, you took what I would have thought to be a dry subject and made it quite interesting. I personally left the class having learned much more than I had anticipated. So, thank you and Ilook forward to taking your advanced course in the future. “
-Manager R&D, Boston Scientific
“The presentation was a success and we certainly couldn't have done it without you. We had a tough and very vocal crowd. Lots of questions and good debate. S. D. mentioned to me afterward that he saw a marked improvement in Jeff's communication skills and said
something to the effect of, " J.'s obviously been Beckerized".
We've been asked to present again in October.
Thanks again Dennis for all your help. You are very good at what you do and I will highly recommend you to others seeking consult on speech improvement. I hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future.”
-Marketing Project Director, Boston Scientific
“The feedback was excellent! I think you stimulated a lot of thinking in the group. Several of the attendees expressed an interest. I was particularly interested in taking the next step. I am sure you will hear from him”.
-Division President, Boston Scientific
“It was terrific working with you again yesterday! Actually, I think that was one of the best (most productive) sessions we've had. You lived up to all the advance hype I had shared with the team, and I'm sure they were very appreciative of your feedback. It's like the doctor tells you when you get a shot, "this might sting for a second, but you'll feel better later”
-Sales & Marketing Coordinator, Watson Wyatt Worldwide
“Dennis, It was a valuable use of my time
I also would like our management team to share this experience with me.”
-Senior Account Manager,AMR Research
“Thank you for providing so many useful tools to us yesterday! Where normally I am just a big ball of anxiety when I think of giving a presentation. I am now excited to use the skills you introduced.
Thank you for an excellent session. I truly enjoyed it.”
-E Marketing Research Manager, Best Buy
“So you heard that I used "A Christmas Carol" to structure my speech, huh? The sprit of eCommerce past, present, and yet to come was a bit of a stretch, but it made it fun and I got to sneer "Bah Humbug" at the audience. Bill mentioned he was planning a February session to Beckerize some more folks. You should get a trademark for that verb. We love working with you too, and we definitely enjoyed the session with your team. Old guys like us can learn new tricks if you give us some time. :-) We look forward to building some business opportunities together.”
-Sr. Research Analyst, Black Friars
“I wanted to tell you that half of my staff took your all day course yesterday and came back with a resounding “that was GREAT!” “I thought it would be boring but before I knew it the day was gone.” Even my “tough, unenthusiastic employee - L. Z., said it was GREAT. They roared the Tony the tiger - GREAT. So, many thanks.”
-Sr. VP of HR, AMR Research
“We have received excellent feedback from your training and are gathering more names for the next time you can join us. Until then, take care”
-Training & Development Coordinator, LandsEnd
