Kudos from attendees
- The powerful dynamic of two best-friend lawyer business partners who both presented with such a great balance of wit and sobriety provided for consistently engaging sessions. They were really able to put the participants at ease, even in their presentation of a lot of sometimes-dense content.
- It reinforced what I already knew, expanded into new territory, and helped me see the connections.
- The instructors were very engaging and did an excellent job capturing everyone’s attention. They were also very well organized. Some of the best presenters I have seen.
- The attorneys at VM were engaging, related, humorous, and had expert knowledge of investigations.
Excellent teachers. Both instructors are fantastic and lived up to all the hype, which is even a harder task.
- There was never a dull moment. I loved the variety (role playing, exercises, lecture, etc.) that the instructors provided.
- The presenters worked seamlessly in covering all of the topics on the agenda at a comfortable pace. Their instruction was clear and succinct.
- Great program…one that should be a requirement for anyone who will conduct investigations as part of their job.
- This is the best training I have ever attended. Sue Ann and Deborah are brilliant, funny, and excellent instructors.
- Not only was it clear that the presenters were both extremely knowledgeable in the field (including the president of AWI, for goodness sake) — they also presented the material in an engaging way. They held my sincere interest through all 3 days, which I feel is an incredible achievement.
- This is the best and most helpful training I have received. Very professional and thorough. I would definitely attend their training again.
- I think the presenters’ presentation skills were excellent and they did a good job of varying the types of activity. Overall, I can’t stress enough how excellent this training was.
- I learned helpful substantive information as well as soft skills that will assist me in performing all areas of my job responsibilities — everything from the legal requirements for an adequate investigation, to how to handle a deposition.
- The best parts of the training were the very engaging instructors (used different methods to deliver course content), the expert knowledge of the instructors, the opportunity to work in peer-group sessions, having a wonderful guidebook and templates, and the meeting accommodations.
- Thank you for your training. Your sessions were organized and well-presented, and provided a better understanding of the law for our managers and supervisors.
- The presentation by Ms. Maddux was informative and generated excellent discussion between all the attendees. I have only one suggestion. Although I am not a fan of trainings in general (especially 3 hours worth) I believe that this particular session could have even been longer.
- The smaller group size actually produced some great discussion… one of [our supervisors] told us this morning that employees are much more aware of what they’re saying and doing and that it’s all good!
- Several people took the time to call and tell me and many others spoke in the halls. Everyone agreed that you are the best presenter yet.
- I would like to thank you again for a job well done. We all had a good time and learned, which was the point all along. Talking about it with the staff has actually created a buzz with them, as well.
- Sue Ann, my colleagues and I raved about your training to our supervisor! It was, by far, one of the best trainings I have ever attended, and I am critical of training in general. My colleagues and I told our supervisor that we hope you will come back and offer your one day training on disability investigations. If you do, we will be there!
- Alex is a really great presenter. He makes potentially dry subject matter interesting and engaging.
