Every seminar is a new experience and there is nothing more rewarding that meeting new people and contributing to their growth as professionals. It’s great to hear comments and remarks from attendees so that we know if the program is working. Here are comments from a few of our participants.

“Thank you Wayne for delivering your seminar to our group, and for your kind comments. Everyone really enjoyed it, and many said it was the best seminar they have ever been at, including me.”

“Thank you so much for the information. I recently have taken on another position for this company and was starting to struggle completing my tasks. The information you covered showed me the adjustments I need to make and I am already seeing the results.”

“Hi Wayne, on behalf of the group I would like to express our many thanks. All of us took away valuable information to be better at what we do. For that we sincerely thank you!”

“As you can appreciate, we all get so involved in our busy day to day routines, it takes a day like we spent with you to slow us down for a moment look around the room to see one of the best teams put together to be successful in this tough and competitive business. Thanks for your help”

“Really focused on all the ideas and how they worked together – PM, accounting and estimating. Would recommend all in my office attend this seminar.”

“Provided further understanding of operations and financial management related to project management.”

“Presentation exceeded my expectations – well done. “

“Great job on the training last week! You are so sincere and compassionate in your delivery. I particularly found the parts when you put your “accountant hat” on very helpful because it enabled me to understand why accountants do what they do and how their goal is to help contractors improve their business, not just add more work. Kudos for taking a comprehensive topic (that you obviously know very well) and simplifying it and enabling participants to put theory into practice.”

“An excellent speaker with an extraordinary comprehension of running a Profitable Contracting firm.”

“Most informative seminar that I have ever attended to date.”

“Course content of seminar well-grounded by printed materials, videos, power point presentation and articulate instruction and Q&A by presenter.”

“Wayne was a great, friendly, informative speaker. Appreciate the use of real examples and discussions amongst the group on current practices. Easy to understand, many exercises that promoted the understanding of what was taught. For a very dry subject Wayne kept my attention and the information relatable, relevant and interesting.”

“Program was fantastic. I wish I had taken this course before I started my business.”

“Fantastic, booklet is a great idea.”

“Wayne was very knowledgeable and informative.”

“Manual seems very comprehensive. Will definitely use. Wayne is charming and easy to listen to.”

“Most valuable part of the course was the reference manual.”

“The Profitable Contracting Seminar was such an informative course. This was one of the better educational courses that I’ve attended and really appreciated how it was focused on cash flow and how to maintain the flow. I can say that thanks to the information that I learned yesterday I can now see the bigger picture when it comes to making sure that I get compensated for my time and stop doing things for free.”

“This was a very good seminar from a GC view. Wayne Newell, the presenter was well informed in the course materials, equipped with powerpoint, and full course manuals etc. The fact this was a ‘working’ seminar made the content interesting. The presenter previously worked in the construction industry and therefore related his presentation to it.”

“Wayne kept my attention and interest. It was pure enjoyment watching his passion behind his craft. The take-home manual was an added plus. His knowledge was excellent as shown by his real world experiences and examples.”
