Here are just a few of the many testimonials and letters of thanks we receive.

It is important to remember, though, that not everyone of our clients write testimonials. They simply invite us back, again and again and again...

I found the training immensely beneficial. I have been sharing the lessons with my team every day one tip at a time during our 10min meetings. Once I have some evidence of the benefits I will be telling the Kitchener office they would be crazy not to take some similar training.

Your advice about seeking 12 mentors really resonated with me. I had been doing this in some fashion before but realizing this is a way to improve one’s shortcomings is something I didn’t really give enough value. When people say they are going to be your mentor you think more about them teaching you a subject not really sharing life lessons.

It all seems so clear now I can’t believe I didn’t see this before. Not quite time management but valuable advice just the same.

Thanks again!

Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Louisville KY Chapter Thank you so much for your presentation to the MPI - Bluegrass Chapter last Thursday. I will admit that this is the first time I have ever responded to a speaker following their presentation. I received more out of your message than all previous speakers in the past, combined. I have tried to adapt some of your suggestions into my routine for the past few days (especially the protein for breakfast) and am seeing positive results.

Thank you for a wonderful message. I just felt compelled to let you know that you are making a difference.

Have a wonderful day!

I really missed something special. Thank you for coming back to provide such a good workshop on linkedin for HAPPEN members.

The workshop. "How to Set Up Your Linkedln profile correctly, and Maximize Social Media in Your Job Search" was extremely well received by our members. It represented the largest number of members at the Markham location since it opened in January. That alone indicates the importance of the workshop. Once again, your knowledge and understanding of the topic were recognized by our members. You were able to open the eyes of some to the importance and value of LinkedIn. Those who had not yet used it - will be, those who have been using it - will be using it more. Complete comments from our members are found in the Speaker Feedback report. I hope you enjoy reading them and find them useful for future presentations.

Once again, thank you for coming. As pointed out by some. technology is changing at such a fast pace that regular updates are really necessary. With this in mind, your willingness to share takes on even greater importance and value. We do look forward to your next visit.

Yours very truly.

On behalf of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE), I would like to extend a sincere thank you for your dynamic keynote presentation at the 2009 Canada Education Conference in Toronto.

Your presentation on the many Web 2.0 innovations and technological advances happening in our world today and their impact on individuals and businesses generated a real buzz among our attendees. Many surprising insights and discoveries were made by everyone in attendance and the positive yet realistic picture you painted certainly had everyone thinking about the role of social technology in their personal and work lives.

We appreciate the effort that went into making this session memorable and we will certainly share our great experience with others. I hope that we have the opportunity to work together again in the future.

The Society of Management Accountants of Ontario

I wanted to send you a formal word of thanks for the excellent Breakfast Briefing you offered our members. "Establishing Best Practices in a New Situation" was very well received and the evaluations, uniformly excellent. As members, they can be highly critical and do not give compliments idly. So, getting a high score from them is even more significant than might usually be the case.

Participation in this event came from all management levels and from many industries -from Ontario Hydro Generation to GE Capital Mortgage Insurance; from Citco (Canada) to DuPont Canada; from BDO Dunwoody LLP to Pharmacia Animal Health; from Blue Giant Equipment to Canada Post. In spite of this great diversity , you were able to impart useful information to all.

Again, thank you for your efforts.

Nestlé Canada

I just wanted to let you know that I have found TREMENDOUS benefit from working through the time management techniques presented through the "cool-time" course. I have attended many of these in the past, and and I leave with great intentions, but no habit change results.

Following the rules of adult learning and the change model really works. The personal commitment to change, time for reflection and then follow-up, forces you to internalise and fit the changes somewhere into your daily world. The theory is not rocket science but the implementation (habit change) is. The "bite-size" approach has really worked for me. I am starting already to feel the effect of better management of my time. I have a long way to go, but at least I am aware of that now and am committed to getting there!

The Citadel Assurance (Now Axa)

Recently, The Citadel General Assurance used the services of Bristall Morgan Inc. to provide one day training sessions on Time Management. This program was based on the content of Steve's book "Cool Time and the Two-Pound Bucket". Steve is an excellent speaker and was very helpful at customizing his courses to our environment and training needs. The content of the training program was practical and participants were motivated to apply their new techniques on the job.

Steve also provides excellent follow-up to his training so that participants are reminded of what they learned in the session and they are motivated to continue to use these skills.

I would not hesitate to recommend Steve's seminar to other organizations that would like to provide Time Management training to their organization.

Recently HSBC Securities used the services of Steve Prentice from Bristall Morgan, for our Branch Administrators conference this year. Steve conducted a seminar on Time Management. We found his training to be outstanding, and managed to capture and maintain the attention of the attendees throughout the entire seminar . We would not hesitate to use his services for future training, and recommend his services wholeheartedly.

I am pleased to offer this letter of reference for Steve Prentice, author of Cool Time. Steve's three 90 minute sessions were one of the most highly rated workshops with participants commenting that the techniques and ideas were of great practical value...As a member of the conference organization committee I found Steve very amenable to customizing his presentation for our audience, incorporating our key acronyms. Steve also proactively surveyed our participants pre-registered in his workshop to assess their specific needs and questions....I would definitely recommend Steve to other organizations interested in providing their employees with practical time management tools and ideas.

Knightsbridge Career Management

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Steve Prentice. Steve has regularly held two seminars for our executive clients in career transition at Knightsbridge Career Management: "Up to Speed" and "Time Management for Executives in Transition". These sessions help our clients become more technology savvy and help them assess and re-think how they use their time.

Steve consistently receives very positive feedback for his highly informative sessions and engaging presentation style.

Hi Steve:
I attended your seminar earlier this year and have worked diligently to read your book and implement many of the tools into both my personal and business life. There is much still to do, however I have to say, this book has been life altering for me, most measurably at work. Today is Friday and when I think back over what I have accomplished these last two weeks with the help of your tools, I am astounded. The sense of accomplishment is extremely rewarding.

Many, many thanks,
Theresa Martin, CGA
Willington Martin, CGAs

Just a quick note to say that I have been applying the Cool Time principles for a month or so now and have managed to find more time in my days for constructive pursuits and less stress. I have recommended your book to my colleagues and associates whenever the challenges of work-life balance or stress management arise.

Thanks and regards,

Dear Steve,

I want to tell you how much I enjoyed your presentation to the CAEM last week. Of the many workshops and seminars I have attended over the years, yours is one of a handful that I have found myself reviewing and planning to implement in my life. I've studied your handout and the website and plan to use the tools you so generously share with your audience.

Naomi Wagschal
Canadian Association of Exposition Management (CAEM)

Dear Mr. Prentice,

I recently read 'Up to Speed' Career Transition Resources for Executives and found it to be a wonderful resource in assisting me in my job hunting efforts. Thank you for such a well written text. What I found most useful was your column of opportunity concept which prioritizes the areas in which you should focus your job search, mainly through your personal network.

Warm regards,
Candace Jagarnauth B.A.Sc., E.I.T.
