  • Literally got me thinking about the thought process and how this could be positively impacted.
  • Made me apply some of the principles to my previous real life experiences.
  • It challenged my thinking, Tremaine’s content is the bit between “old dog” and “new tricks”.

  •  Thought provoking, insightful and practical. Some clear takeaways that can be applied instantly. 
  • The presentation content and pace was excellent (again). The style is very polished and ranks among the very best speakers I have seen. No suggestions for improvement other than having to wait for the third session!
  • Tremaine is an excellent presenter – there was good content, pitched at a digestible level of detail (is not much), and very clearly and engagingly communicated. I joined this workshop as I have concerns about our decision-making culture and processes and today provided stimulating insights and enough to stimulate further thought, research and action.
  •  Clear presentation, good pace, right level of interaction.
  • The subject was very relevant for us and the Tremaine put the message across in a clear way. Not sure that it could be any better.
  • The content and delivery was first class. Exactly how to deliver online learning (in my view) with new content and ideas, and ensure participation and high levels of engagement. Excellent.
