This was my first mediation. Sam knew this and was respectful and reasonable. Additionally, his sense of humor was a breath of fresh air.

I thoroughly enjoyed his enthusiasm and energy - Very interactive, great handouts. Audience engagement and small group activities were great. - He is awesome; love how interaction is such a major part of the learning process. Truly feel inspired to do the extra reading. Just loved all the resources provided, definitely my life will not be the same. - Sam is funnier than heck! His humor continually stayed on point with the presentation. - Outstanding, masterful and practical! One of the best training sessions I've ever attended!
