Raving Fans Speak!
"Garth makes training simultaneously engaging, entertaining and educational. Not an easy task but he pulls it off with grace, freshness and a sense of humor. The training applies to speakers of all experience levels. In sales showing competency to communicate concepts and solutions effectively in front of a group is key to success. I'd recommend Garth's training to anyone in any industry who wants to improve their confidence and effectiveness when leading a talk."
I had the opportunity to get to know Garth during our 6 years of working together at Medical Doctor Associates (MDA) where Garth served as the company’s in-house training and communications expert. In this capacity, Garth repeatedly demonstrated his rare and valuable skill set - a unique ability to create compelling communications involving often complex and/or technical subject matter, delivered to people in a way that blends technical accuracy with business sensitivity, infused with humor and brevity. Garth was also an invaluable team player who repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to make whatever personal sacrifices were necessary to ensure the success of his customers (the employees), his teammates (the IT and PMO organizations), and the company as a whole. His endless energy, compassion, and unique brand of humor immediately endear him, while his skill, courage, and effectiveness earn him the respect of all that work with him. Garth is a versatile training and communications "rock star".
“It is a pleasure learning from Garth. He is the rare combination of technical expert and entertaining instructor. He has a way of teaching technical information to those of us who are not technical. Garth is both knowledgeable and personable. He has a way of making attendees in all his classes feel relaxed and ready to participate.”
Garth created and presented the technical training and I was one of many who benefited. What was challenging for those of us non-technical folks, he made understandable, engaging and enjoyable. His sense of humor made you want to learn. He offered a challenge to open our views to the "other side" of things then what we knew. I highly recommend him.
Garth is an absolute pleasure to work with. I first worked with Garth when he was a trainer with MDA and I was impressed by his dedication and ability to learn quickly. I also liked that Garth had taught himself SharePoint and when I had an opening for a SharePoint administrator he was my first thought. Garth worked with me to get SharePoint online implemented for Cross Country Healthcare which enabled us to retire several old SharePoint servers. Garth also worked with the site owners from the business to ensure that they knew how to perform their tasks to keep our internal site up to date and relevant. This is just one example that show cases Garth's ability to manage a project, build good customer relationships, ensure requirements are met and train the end users. Garth would be a wonderful addition to any team.
Garth is a highly skilled Technical Trainer. He is very adept in organizational development, and content selection. I think that his on-the-job experience has afforded him a well-rounded skill set, including first-rate presentation and communication skills, In the years I worked with Garth I found him to excel at Curriculum Development and Instructional Material Creation."
