What Past Participants Have to Say:
  • After going through this wonderful workshop, I will definitely be able to use the AI process as a useful resource in the change process in my organization.
  • I have so many resources and tools now to use, and I have a broader understanding of AI and all its applications and power.
  • I hoped to learn the nuts and bolts of AI and I certainly learned that. I wanted to 'get to know David first hand' and I feel that I did. His lectures and openness to engage with questions from us live were great in that regard.
  • I liked the technology and the format which allowed virtual participation and learning.
  • The facilitators were models of walking the talk--encouraging and knowledgeable--sharing and putting up new materials as needed.
