Excellent presenter: solid ideas, research-based, practical tools, enjoyable presenting style.”

I like the presenter’s willingness to discuss cases that didn’t work out and what it taught him. This is consistent with the message given to struggling young adults.”

“Dr. Paterson was an excellent presenter. I very much enjoyed his frank, humorous, and well organized presentations. The supporting documents and resources were excellent and much appreciated. It was very important to share some case study experience as well; a brave approach for a presenter. The case study examples were very helpful as they allowed me to formulate a possible approach I would use to a similar situation using the content of this course.”
