“I really enjoyed the workshop. I also really appreciated the flexible schedule of breaking the workshop into two days – I was able to get the contact hours in and still have a good portion of my day left to accomplish my work.”

Mark Wright, Town of Pittsboro Public Works Superintendent

“I really enjoyed the leadership training/format as well as the discussion we had during the training. The smaller setting was great for discussion purposes because I didn’t feel overwhelmed and hesitant to participate in the discussion.”

Rick Jordan, Town of Cary Reclaimed Water Supervisor

“The BEST continuing ed training! I’ve been in the water & wastewater industry for 20+ years and Erin’s courses are top of my list!”

Virtual,

“I really appreciate that Erin was able to facilitate a workshop that didn’t put me to sleep. She kept the conversation going and kept it interesting. I enjoyed the class.”

– Randy Bell, City of Greensboro Head Operator

“The workshop gave me a behind the scenes view of upper management challenges. That shift in perspective gave me a better understanding how and why they make the decisions they do. And, I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t feel like banging my head against a wall for six hours like I typically do in these classes.”

– Scott Eaton, City of Greensboro Mechanical Technician

“Never a dull moment from the time the class started until it ended,  Erin is an awesome and knowledgeable instructor which made the class fun and promoted individuals  to share their own experiences.  The class topic was an eye opener and I very much enjoyed my time meeting with Erin and the other participants!”

– Lee Eakes, Greenville Utilities Commission

“I’m not a fan of classes but I must say your class was fun. I like the fact that you kept things interesting with engaging topics. Looking forward to taking another class next year.”

– Jonathan Yancey, Water Treatment Supervisor at SGWASA

“Erin taught a great class! I was able to share my stories and contribute to the workshop. I appreciated that opportunity and felt listened to.”

– Phil Harris, SUEZ Plant Operator

“I appreciated that Erin kept the workshop interactive. It made me pay attention and kept me awake.”
