      The class was excellent and worth every penny. I’ve already had two meetings with my supply and customer care teams to implement improvements identified during the class. I love that the concepts were explained simply and the next steps for action were so obvious and clear. Please thank Terry for me.

      The class was very informative, but it is a lot of information to take in during a short time frame. I enjoyed it very much and thought it was well worth the time and cost.

      - Chris - 3/17/22 Manager, Compliance & Customer Service

      This was my second class with Terry and like before, I enjoyed it. Terry is very approachable and helpful in his style of teaching. I found a lot of the information useful. I came away with some things I had known but forgotten and learned how to better use the tool.

      Until taking this seminar, I did not know about the FIXit app. This will give me great examples to hold different departments accountable.

      I enjoyed the class with Terry and appreciate it being offered. I liked that he engaged the attendees throughout the training. It felt it was as in-person as it could have been. The information shared was very informative, and he provided insight and understanding we would not have gotten from a Retail Link update nor documentations issued from the Acadamy in Retail Link. I had a number of take- aways from this training and am confident they will assist with better management of our SQEP performance.

      The training was excellent and I learned several things that will lead to improvements. I thought Terry did a great job.
