Testmonials

This was a spectacular program!

This was a spectacular program. The content was spot-on. I walked away with a practitioner’s graduate degree in everything from research to creative to measurement. This seminar was worth the four-hour drive to and from D.C. in the rain — I would enroll again in a heartbeat just to hear more from Steve and Cindy.

I have a renewed sense in my ability to perform my own research and question the way we have always done things

I was able to bring back some great strategies for my group and also have a renewed sense in my ability to perform my own research and question the way we have always done things. Great course!

Steve Crescenzo is a powerhouse!

Cindy’s research provided valuable customer information and clear direction

The surveys and focus groups that Cindy Crescenzo conducted for us provided valuable customer information and clear direction for our organization’s communications plan. Cindy led the team from the start, guiding us through question and survey design, survey administration, analysis and follow up. Cindy was extremely organized, flexible and she gave us great suggestions to improve every aspect of the research we conducted. Probably the thing that impressed me the most was how quickly Cindy got up to speed with our business operations. She clearly spent time getting to know what we do, what is important to us and what is important to our customers. In the end, the research analysis Cindy delivered to us was (and still is) an invaluable tool that helps us make important business decisions for our organization.

I can’t say enough about the Strategy Ladder

I can’t say enough about the Strategy Ladder that was presented. I couldn’t get moving on rolling out an initiative, and it’s exactly what I needed to get started. Thank you!

You’ll walk out with so many ideas

You’ll walk out with so many ideas and tactics you won’t know which to use first. A word of advice: use them all.

Before the seminar was even over I had a million ideas

Before the seminar was even over I had a million ideas. For the first time I’m excited for Monday so I can start working on a new creative communications plan!

Steve and Cindy packed two days worth of valuable information into one day

I love how Steve and Cindy packed two days worth of information into one day. While it was a lot to take in, they made it fun and easy to digest. The tools are fantastic! Best workshop materials ever! It’s so valuable to walk away from this workshop with not only the knowledge and also these tools, especially when the boss asks, ‘So, what did you get out of the workshop?’

Steve’s style and stories were far more engaging and interesting to me than any other professional training class I have taken in a long time

Steve’s style and stories were far more engaging and interesting to me than any other professional training class I have taken in a long time. He is able to directly apply realistic ways to be more creative in the corporate world.

Very few seminars provide practical value, but this one did

In my thirty years experience with an aerospace company that advocates professional development, very few seminars have provided practical value, but this one did. Thank you.

Steve is always so funny and informative

I have seen Steve speak several times, and he always is so funny and informative. I describe his sessions like doing a mini Corporate Communication MBA with a Jon Stewart Daily Show twist.

This seminar made me laugh like I was visiting a comedy club

This is the first seminar that made me laugh like I was visiting a comedy club, but also allowed me to walk away with invaluable information.
