Excellent Culture Workshop

“I was excited for the opportunity to attend the Excellent Culture Workshop. The material covered in the workshop was enlightening. I look forward to implementing some of the newly learned skills in my daily life at Bite Me. I believe it is critical to the success of making real change utilizing the skills learned in the workshop. I would attend again if given the opportunity and would definitely recommend this workshop to other companies. Again, I appreciate the opportunity NMSDC provided by offering the workshop, it was worth the back log of work I returned to.”
