I have concluded that more than anything else, applying your guidance over the last five years has helped me become the manager I am today. I thank you for this and hope you take a minute to read through and understand the profound impact you've had on me personally and my global organization of 220 people.

Following the advice and common sense that Manager Tools advocates has made me a more effective manager; which has helped me build my management team and make our company a better place to work. In short, Manager Tools has improved the quality of work life for all employees at my company. Thanks MT.

My daughter applied for CEMS, a highly selective international business program for Masters students. First up was a presentation at 7:30am in the morning to the group of selectors plus the other five applicants. Her take on the brief was different to the others and she felt flustered and didn’t present very well. She was sitting there stewing over it in her mind as the next guy presented and feeling pretty down. Then she said the Manager Tools quote came into her head “it’s not the first mistake that loses it, it’s the second and third”. She focussed hard on the group case study which she did well then the personal interview that she nailed. Last week she found out she had been selected. Thank you again for your essential advice.
