From Our Clients

Finding your purpose and passion.

Jonathan Silk was our featured speaker at our annual meeting. He led a team of professionals from across Texas through a workshop on finding your purpose and passion. The attendees immediately connected with Jonathan and his message resonated. He took the time to meet with me prior to the workshop and design a unique experience that was tailored to the audience and to incorporate our larger goals of the meeting. It was an excellent professional development opportunity for those who attended. I would recommend Jonathan and his team to anyone looking for training, design thinking, coaching, or group professional development opportunities.
