Our experiences with the White Pines Creative Corporate Training team have been wonderful! From the first planning meeting to the final evaluations, the insight and sensitivity that Ben and his colleagues brought to our small group team building work and our large group skills enhancement work have been remarkable. What distinguishes the White Pines Creative Professional Workshops team from every other training provider is the fun and creativity that allows them to adapt and incorporate new information mid-stream, all within a safe and comfortable environment.We have recommended White Pines wholeheartedly to our colleagues, and look forward to working with this team again.
Having the improv troupe work with us was just genius. I wouldn’t change that contribution in any way. I was amazed at how insightful their performances were and how the process was set-up so that we could learn from them. I just didn’t think that an improv session about office dynamics and communication was going to have any value at all. They were so prepared and so generous with us in the fact that they clearly worked very very hard to understand the challenges we face in interpersonal interactions at work. The activities that pulled us out of our comfort zones made embarrassment and failure much less fearful prospect in anticipation and in the actual experience.
I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how pleased I was with the class on Tuesday. I’m still smiling when I think about how well it went. You and Gavin were amazing, and please tell Michelle that I giggle every time I think her saying “DJ was magnetic!”. Just glorious!"
