We invited Doug Van Dyke from DVD Consulting Incorporated to facilitate the session, and all participants agreed that he did an exemplary job of leading a tough team to achieve the goals stated at the outset of the session. Doug’s entertaining style and experience as a skilled facilitator made him an invaluable asset to the team and a key to the success of the sessio’n. We often refer to that offsite as a defining and successful event in our company’s history. I highly recommend Doug Van Dyke as a skilled facilitator and consultant.
