About The Settlement Clinic's Growing your Practice Programme: "I am really glad I signed up for your clinic. I really enjoyed the day and have high hopes for the upcoming year."
"I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed the first module of The Settlement Clinic! I not only walked away motivated and inspired but also with a concrete framework to gather my ideas and truly start building a business that will offer an invaluable service, echo my belief system and represent who I am as a person." "I was so inspired by today that I went home and wrote myself a new bio!" "I still feel the endorphin rush from our coaching call earlier today!" "Your Settlement Clinic is having a big ripple effect." "Thank you for your incessant encouragement and passion." "Outstanding job!"
About the Keynotes, Training, and Workshops: "This was one of the most engaging and informative workshops / seminars that I have had the privilege to attend." "I attend countless workshops each year from AFCC, OAFM, etc. but I must say this one stands out as one of the best." "Your passion, enthusiasm and knowledge cannot go without being recognized and appreciated." "I just watched your talk online this morning and was thrilled with your excellent and thoughtful representation of the collaborative process. For those who think that collab is a “soft process”, you showed exactly the opposite, that we work very much at a high legal level with lots of other very sophisticated tools. Proud to be a collaborative practitioner this morning." "The feedback from everyone was very positive and exciting. You gave us a lot of food for thought." "It was the best evening I've spent at Collaborative Practice Toronto." "The interactive nature of the design really shone the flashlight on how much even devoted collaborative practitioners struggle. Shifting the way we’ve always managed the flow of our initial client consultations from ‘broadcast’ to ‘active listening & questions’ really came into sharp focus as everyone who took ‘the chair’ (and those who wouldn’t go near it!) felt the discomfort of doing something really new (and many of these people are our most experienced practitioners!)" "The "initial consult" is alway challenging. You provided lots of good insights & good take aways to improve these meetings." "I found the Advanced Mediation workshop to be very helpful and practical, and am already using some of the tools you’ve developed." "Deborah, thanks again...you are a true inspiration.....it was great listening to your talk!!" "Just wanted to thank you for coming out to speak to the Durham CP group last week. I enjoyed your talk very much - your enthusiasm is infectious! You are such a great example that collaborative practice works!" "The feedback from last evening’s session has been tremendous!" "You convey a passionate commitment to the collaborative resolution model that is quite infectious." About the Strategic Planning Retreats: "I think we have motivated many of our less active members." "I have a renewed focus/passion about where I need to be and what I need to do to grow my practice." "Our group is re-invigorated." "We received a myriad of good ideas on promotion, team and process development." "I will be more involved in my local group as a result of this retreat." "I have been reminded why I do this work." "Just hearing Deborah's stream of consciousness 'sales pitch' was AMAZING!!!" "Renewed connection with people who have a renewed commitment to this work." "I would have loved to have a video of today because the conversations were so rich!"
