"As someone who has done this assessment tool in the past, I must say this workshop was captivating, insightful, and powerful in learning about our strengths to the next level! It not only helped me learn about myself, it helped me learn about others on my team. I would love to take this again and I would love to recommend this to others!" - March 2021 virtual participant

“The personalized report was very insightful and helped me see potential in myself that I had never realized before. The atmosphere was fun and welcoming, which kept me engaged and entertained throughout the whole seminar.”
- July 2020 virtual participant

"I would definitely recommend this. Unlike the personality test, I think this really applies to teamwork, which is something prevalent in university. By knowing your talents and how it impacts the team, it could make a difference in how things play out."
