"We participated as part of a company-wide training program for all of our client partners and consultants as a key learning and development initiative. Our experience was very positive.

This course should be required for every consultant to do once. It will put a new consultant on the right track at the outset.

Those who have been trained in this program will have developed better listening skills and will be more empathetic. They will also be perceived asdelivering a benefit with each interaction and hence stand out in the eyes of the client."

- Dinesh Mirchandani, Managing Director, Boyden
