Testimonials from Advocis Vancouver – Vancouver, BC – April 20, 2010

“Lots of information shared quickly, efficiently and clearly. I enjoyed the limiting beliefs session. It was great to see this type of presentation finally in our industry Pro Days. Thanks!

I didn’t expect to see some very relevant materials other than technical stuff. Starting with you – it all begins there. Practice management how simple it is to free up the mind.”
Penny Deming

“Most improved speaker I have seen in the last 5 years. Also it is very refreshing to see sponsorship of Advocis and corporate sponsors for speakers who want to make change.”
Bill Murdoch

“Excellent tips on organization and addressing negative thought processes and how to break negative patterns. Needs must be met and you cannot meet them through others. How to exercise through this is as important as a journal.”

“Great review for me at this time in my career. I loved Part 2. Excellent information on how to conduct business effectively – values based. Two presentations from Simon in one day what a bonus.
