Excellent post! We live in a remote coastal town in British Columbia and are organizing our first trainer roundtable next week. What you have written about is exactly the reason we have put this meeting together! I will share this with each of the trainers who attends. I look forward to your next post on the topic.
Glad you enjoyed it Lorne!
