See What Participants Say About Dave Gerber's Speaking & Training Programs:
"Dave Gerber's passionate delivery and relevant information resonated with me, as it did for nearly 100 others in attendance at his recent "On Fire Leadership" seminar at the Washington DC PMI Chapter. His high energy, effective and memorable use of humor and certainly, the exceptional content of his presentation made for a most impressive training experience. He understands the world of work, and more specifically, the world of project management. His integration of fresh approaches to success within the context of projects will prove most useful to me immediately and in the future. I was so impressed with our training day that I am looking forward to hiring Dave for two events of my own in 2009/2010 and beyond!"
-- Sandi Redman, Project Manager, NTCA, 2009/2010
"Dave Gerber exceeded my expectations from start to finish. Our packed conference had 110 professionals that were fully engaged, in appreciation of valuable training and entertained for the 4 hours he spoke. Dave is one of the best presenters and trainers I have seen in my 44+ year experience in the industry, with conference attendance and as a board member. Not only can he present extremely well, his content knowledge is extensive and his passion seemed unlimited. Dave would be a great asset to any conference, convention, workshop or training seminar!"
-- Fred Klein, President, TRI STATE ASHI
"I selected Dave Gerber to be the keynote speaker at the opening general session of the National League of Cities (NLC) 2007 State League Staff Workshop, which is an annual 2 1/2 day program sponsored by NLC for the staffs of state municipal leagues around the country. I am glad that I asked Dave to be the keynote because he was passionate and engaging and did a very good job of connecting with the audience. I received a lot of positive feedback onsite about Dave's presentation, with several meeting attendees telling me that he knew his subject well, and that they learned a lot about team building and conflict resolution. I would recommend Dave Gerber to any organization!"

"Within any organization, conflict is present in a variety of ways. Whether the conflict is positive or negative most people are uncomfortable handling on their own. Without question, Synergy Development & Training has developed programs and useful tools that have helped us make an immediate impact to make conflict a productive interaction between individuals. Each year they have consistently delivered innovative, passionate, and actionable skills that support our drive toward excellence and help our staff members develop competencies throughout the organization. Managers and employees leave each class energized and viewing conflict more as an opportunity to minimize concerns and less as an excuse or risk to avoid something. I offer my highest recommendation for Synergy Development and Training to develop and deliver your Conflict Resolution coursework."
-- Lee Corbett , Manager, Performance and Development, Novo Nordisk
