- YKK's creativity workshop is a real mind-opening experience for me and my colleagues. The simple yet powerful Mindxercises enable us to think beyond our present constraints. The lessons learnt are extremely useful and practical to our ongoing restructuring exercise. I highly recommend this course to senior executives involved in strategic planning.

As always, great communication, follow up and quick turnaround time for all queries. Very patient too – it took us quite a while to confirm Greg, but Anita was very patient and just kept following up.
I also always enjoy working with Anita and Jean. The CSNZ staff are so knowledgable about all the speakers on your books and, although we didn't book any others through CSNZ this year, both this year and in the past CSNZ have recommended people who would be a perfect fit for what we are after.
