- David Moore, MSM, Performance Excellence Facilitator
"Paul's use of music, stories, and Native American anecdotes captures and keeps audience attention, increasing the chance of successfully getting the intended message across. As a result of attending Paul's session, I understand the need, and duty, of a leader to pick up loose ends and/or tackle problems that seem to be assigned to no one. If there's no Chief, promote yourself to the job! Paul has the charisma and talent to get a message across to an audience. His delivery, story telling and the use of magic could be used to help sway the naysayers in our organization."
- Debra A. Narayan, MBA, MT(ASCP) DLM, Laboratory Manager
"Paul provided an opportunity to learn more about the staff and what makes them tick. He also, created a coin phrase that staff relate to now, Be a chief of XXXX and see if you can solve that issue (i.e.step in, be engaged, own fixing an issue.), which allowed the staff to recognize that solving issues are not just a manager’s responsibility. It was valuable, and staff was appreciative of being given the opportunity!"
- Kathy Skrzypczak, Asst. VP Corporate Services
"The presentation of my own magic trick at the end was a very positive experience. I found the more I practiced, the easier it was.

Thanks for taking the time to invest in me."
- Anne Walls, RN, BSN, Director Emergency Services

- Rachel Raos, Audio/Visual Volunteer Services Coordinator
"Paul helped me to realize that drawing on the things I am passionate about outside of work can be tapped into to energize the way I present to and facilitate large groups. Paul has the ability to train on many different topics: communication, team building, and diversity awareness!"
- Gabriel Brooks, Performance Excellence Facilitator & Trainer
