We have used SIT presenter, Yoni Stern, for two years now in one of our Leadership Training programs as part of the five day Core Leadership program. It was the most highly rated instructional content in the program by far. // Toni Bentfeld, Curriculum Manager, GE

Yoni! Just a quick note to thank you again, officially, for all the effort you put into our ideation session in South Africa. In my view we had a really rich, stimulating and entertaining few days, and I'm confident that they will yield a series of projects that will help move our business forward in a very different way. You put together a very professional session for our team, and I know that the attendees were impressed, and really felt that they'd had a very different few days. // Libby, Marketing Manager, BP Africa
