I have had the pleasure of partnering with Melissa to support safety and leadership training for 100s employees from various backgrounds. After each session, the feedback was always exemplary. She brings a level of expertise and energy to the classroom that genuinely engages attendees and leaves them with actionable items that they can immediately apply to their work.
Melissa & her team are very responsive to service requests. Her trainers are very knowledgeable and easy to work with.
