“Maureen conducted an excellent class.  I liked the hands-on nature of the class and the activities and examples used.  Her manual and notes were clear and concise.  Dealing with our boisterous personalities was a real challenge which she handled with ease and professionalism.”

“She left all our employees highly motivated and excited with the Lean Six Sigma concepts.  Maureen also managed to relate the concepts to our scope of business, making her 2-day training session highly interactive, challenging and productive.  Excellent job!  I look forward to attending another of her classes in the future.”

“The instructor, Maureen, is fabulous.  She made the material interesting, fun – and thoroughly understandable. “

“Maureen came to T2 Technology Group to certify the entire staff in Lean Six Sigma.   We were very impressed and satisfied by Maureen’s professionalism and knowledge.  She answered all questions with precision and gave relevant examples.  The manual is very well conceived and will help employees apply Lean Six Sigma at an operational level.  She stuck to the schedule and delivered a high quality training in only 2 days.  All employees already have Lean Six Sigma project ideas to apply within the company.  Maureen is an excellent trainer, the whole T2 team found her very professional and personable.”
