IMG_0737In the last two years, Paul Casey from Growing Forward Services presented at the July Business Development University (BDU) and the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce. Both times Paul did an outstanding job of educating local members of our business community. Not only is he a knowledgeable and dynamic presenter, but he incorporates interactive elements and keeps the attention of his audience the entire duration. He has always been well-prepared, and our staff is confident that will present a fantastic BDU – we always know we can expect a great program. Paul is also a favorite presenter of our Regional Chamber members who attend the meetings. He receives positive reviews and people return again and again when they know he’s the presenter. I highly recommend Paul Casey for any endeavors which he is undertaking..  –Ashley Coronado, Government Contracting Assistance Specialist, Washington Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC); Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce


Finally, the answer to unifying your staff!

If you are looking for on or off-site staff team-building experience, choose Paul. He will take the time to get to know you as the leader and the dynamics of your team, to cut to the heart of the communication skills and values that need reinforcement. The workshops are several hours of engaging activities, insightful assessments, practical equipping, and constructive dialogue. The workshops are customized and creative. There is even the option of art-based team-building.

Team-building will only stick if adhered to daily; because of that fact, Paul encourages integrating team-leader or core-team coaching into the strategic plan of an organization.

Paul made this day a success. He has a real passion for helping others, and this spirit came through during his presentations. Paul is approachable, likable, non-judgmental and able to connect instantly to a large group. I received more compliments from the team about Paul, then any other speaker I had organized in the past. I would recommend Paul to others looking for an opportunity to build their team or solve an issue with their team, large or small. –Deb Dihel, Ph.D. (ConAgra)
