Praise for Kevin Eikenberry
“The end result while working with Kevin Eikenberry was our vision, strategy and tactics for 2005. Kevin worked with our Communication Department for three days, assisting us in brainstorming activities and eventually capturing our final results. Along with the business aspect of the meeting, Kevin helped us grow closer as a team with numerous activities and break-out sessions.I was the primary contact with Kevin Eikenberry. I felt he went beyond the call of duty in his flexibility with us (we changed dates a few times), his work relationship (Kevin flew out to meet with us personally and we had numerous phone conversations) and his knowledge of our business.The return on investment is still occurring. Kevin has developed a business relationship with the head of our department. She is independently calling him for counsel. I feel confident that we will utilize his services again in the future.The key aspect to his success is his enthusiasm while teaching and also the knowledge that he strives to obtain about our business. Kevin did a lot of research and read information on our business, so that when he facilitated he had an understanding of what we were trying to achieve and the best way to do that.”
– T. Steinberg, Communications Specialist, Chevron

“Loved the participatory workbook – staved off distractions or kept me engaged and writing notes; content I will keep at the office to refer back often. Kevin was superb at addressing questions (many from left field!) and applying his answers to the session content by putting them back into context of our goals (why we are here!) Awesome.”
– Schlaine Grass, Embanet Compass Knowledge Group
“I was pleasantly surprised by the overall course. The content was very relevant to me as a new supervisor and extremely helpful. Kevin [Eikenberry] made me think and he provided plenty of scenarios and examples that helped me understand the concepts, and will help me to apply them.”
