This was probably the best training I have ever attended. Your attention to detail, materials, and ability to present in a reachable manor far exceeded my expectations. You were engaging, informative, and real. I would recommend this course to anyone in HR regardless of the size of your company. Succession planning is key to my success as an HR Business Partner with UC Davis Health and I am grateful for the empowerment I feel and skills I acquired as a participant in your course. I look forward to implementing what I learned in my department and now have the confidence and tools I need to demonstrate the value of Succession Planning with our Executive Leaders and get a great strategy in place. Thank you for sharing your craft, you are truly gifted at what you do!

Doris is a subject matter expert in Talent Review & Succession Planning Management. Her rich experience, combined with her consultative mindset, makes Doris a trusted resource to ‘students’ in her workshops and a valuable partner to any organization in enhancing their talent management strategy.

Doris facilitates great workshops! Having just gone through implementing our company’s Talent Benchstrength strategy, it was refreshing and insightful to hear her talk through the steps, 1 by 1. It was also helpful in formulating ideas and suggested tweaks we could do to make our delivery of talent reviews even better in years to come! Many facilitators I’ve had before have been self-promoting and egotistical about their intellectual property, yet Doris is incredibly focused on not only helping others logistically pull together talent review meetings, but also developing into confident facilitators. Her patience and instruction were beyond measure!

Very practical and valuable information, the content goes from high level strategy of Talent Management and Succession down to practical details. A great opportunity to exchange experiences with other HR professionals and to expand the network.

I recommend the Talent Review-Succession Strategy Seminar to talent professionals looking to either introduce a talent strategy or take what you have to the next level. Doris has a unique perspective on the topic and generously shares her wealth of knowledge.

Doris is clearly a go-to succession, talent bench-strength expert. She has developed a program, process, and materials that go beyond the philosophical approach so often offered. She equips those who attend her workshop with everything they need to apply what they learn in a meaningful way, and she stands ready to support as needed. Her goal is to teach people to become self-sufficient.

Barb Astler, MedData

The practical application of this seminar far exceeded by expectations. I was delighted to see that the tools and processes that Doris shared and taught had applicability far beyond the talent review/succession planning process; but could be used as resources for ongoing development and coaching for our managers.

Russ Hall, First Interstate Bank

The 10-step planning approach created by Doris to launch a Talent Review/Succession Management stratgy within your organization, is a well-structured and transparent approach which I can strongly recommend.

The content provided in Doris’ Talent Review-Succession Workshop is very detailed and practical, and connects every aspect of talent management. Doris’ experience in the world of talent management added lots of value to her facilitation of the workshop. I feel this is a must attend program for any talent management professional seeking to add value to their own personal career and to their organization.
