Student Testimonials

This course goes to 11! I enjoyed it very much and there was so much great information as well as interaction. The fact you stayed late with us to explain and reassure our new team really helped. I can’t say enough amazing things. I am very glad that we were lead to you for the CSM course.
Great course to take me from very basic Scrum knowledge to confidence that I can implement on my own.
Vic’s presentation style makes an interesting topic even more engaging and I feel that I can already apply the pointers I picked up. I would recommend Vic for anyone who’s responsibilities include training and motivating individuals to help themselves achieve their learning goals.
It was my pleasure to attend one of Vic’s training sessions. The interactive exercises were fun and I learned a lot about how to make the content of a training stick with the audience. I will definitely be using the insights gained when designing and holding my next training as an Agile Coach.
I loved the alternative teaching styles. Your class pushes the boundaries of a typical online experience. If someone was on the fence, I'd push them over to your class!
When my ScrumMaster told me he wanted to take a CSM class, from what I know about you and your classes, I thought you were likely to focus on servant leadership more than other trainers, so I sent him your way. He came by my desk this morning ecstatic about his experience and the impression you left on him! Really great work you're doing.
It was amazing to see the content in action. Vic effortlessly guided a large group and helped make the wisdom connect with each person. I came away with actionable improvements in how I deliver training and work with teams... The insights I gained from Vic have helped me connect my message with colleagues.
Just wanted to say thanks again for running this 2 day class. I've learned a great deal from you and you are one heck of an instructor. I will definitely recommend you to some of my colleagues for the CSM course. Anyhow, I just took the exam and passed it!! :-)
I was nervous about the CSM course, as I don't typically thrive in a classroom setting. However, Vic was quick to establish a comfortable, welcome, and open environment for our group to learn in. Using interactive tools, he has found engaging and entertaining ways to teach the course through a virtual setting. I enjoyed taking this CSM course with Vic, and I learned a lot. By the end of day two, all of my wildest questions had been answered, and I felt completely confident and ready to take the CSM test. Big thanks to Vic!
