photo Wayne NewellFor the past 35 years Wayne Newell has served in senior management, financial and leadership roles with companies in Canada, the United States and the Caribbean. His experiences and expertise contributed to financial improvements and profitable growth for his employers.

He developed this training course, A Touch of Class, while managing a retirement/nursing home/assisted living facility with 200 residents. When assigned to this project, the company was seriously missing its marketing and financial objectives – occupancy of 225 units was 35%. Employee turnover was 340%.

After implementing The Touch of Class training program, employee morale increased dramatically, lateness and absenteeism reduced significantly, employee turnover fell to 42%, occupancy increased to 92%, resident satisfaction approached 95% and revenues increased to the point the facility became and remained profitable – all in 17 months. He attributes this training program as the principal reason for the facility’s long-term success.

Since 2003, Wayne has presented his two other training programs which include portions of the Touch of Class training program and have been attended by over 2,700 participants.
