“Your seminar on Strategic Thinking provides an entrepreneur with a precursor to strategic planning. Any planning requires a good amount of thinking. Your presentation was simply telling us how to avoid pitfalls and view any challenge from different directions and points of view, and simply set aside time to just think.”

Mort Moosavy, PE, QCxP
