What impressed us most was your ability to tailor your program in such an exact and appropriate manner. You exposed subject matter that was clear, concise and pertinent to our daily routine and we certainly enjoyed learning how to look at difficult situations with a ‘comic vision’.

You have given us a new way to deal with stress at work. The next day several people in the department were using their nose flutes. To this day the crown is still being worn. I have noticed family pictures hanging in cubicles, and the day after the event Paul sent out jokes over e-mail. We have used your video for several staff meetings. Now we have passed it on to other departments and the feedback is good. We have also witnessed people kicking their chairs at the end of the day and asking them to ‘stay.’ To this day I hear our staff members talking about you to others.

The meeting was fun, fast-paced, and informative. We have learned to work more closely, and find the humor in our stressful jobs. Thanks again for a great time!
