“Our company, pep, recently hired Doug to lead a training at our annual conference. He was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish – keeping in consistent communication leading up to the event and his authentic personality shined through in everyone he connected with at pep. I was hearing positive feedback as soon as Doug’s training came to an end. He was prompt in his follow up with our employees, immediately sending the PowerPoint he reviewed. I have heard several times following the event how much people learned from him.”

Jennifer Edwards, Account Executive, Pep Promotions
