I was looking for techniques to help me carry out my role as manager and administrator with greater courage and integrity. In the four days of the workshop I found a surprising number of tools that have greatly improved the level of my day-to-day performance. The experience has proven invaluable. What makes Laurence Hillman so extraordinarily well suited to this work is a profound human sensitivity and compassion, a surprising ability to tap deeply into the energies of those around him, and an honesty and integrity that fosters both the insight that allows discovery and the courage to face that which is discovered. In a world of seriously shifting business paradigms, Laurence is a resource for calmness, clarity and community with few equals.

I recently attended a workshop with Laurence Hillman. His technique and insight give you a different perspective of seeing the world. For anyone in business who needs to get outside the corporate box to see better within it, I highly recommend Laurence. He gently nudges you outside your comfort zone and provides you with the tools and strategy to tackle any challenge before you.

As the owner of a small manufacturing firm I am faced with many challenges. I live in Seattle, two thousand miles away form my factory in St Louis and must manage to successfully maintain operations at a distance. I often find myself in need of a certain perspective on the state of my organization and those are the times I turn to Laurence Hillman for advice. Laurence has been my trusted ally over the past 10 years. Whether I need the strategic advice of a corporate board, help with assessing new hires, or solving in-house team problems, he provides me with enormously practical help every time I reengage his services. His breadth of knowledge is incomparable.
