Testimonials

“We had the privilege of having Kim Glenn present at a series of staff development training sessions for our company. Kim lead 4 deeply insightful sessions over the course of 6 months. Each topic was carefully chosen and delivered strategically and with conviction. My team’s engagement level is at its peak now and each member has since reached all new heights in their careers with no end in sight. Thank you for the motivation Kim!”

Kevin Berntsen, Vice President Admiral Insurance Brokerage

"It’s said that if customers receive excellent service, then they will return. This must be the case for us as customers to have repeatedly requested to have Kim Glenn of EDSI, Inc. partner with our office on a vast array of projects that have spanned over five years. Kim has the distinction of being able to fully function within the parameters of a project and yet balance the needs of those who will eventually benefit from her deliverables while maximizing the benefits to all who are involved. She has the unique ability to not only understand solid instructional design, but also what needs to occur in the real world with real learners and real performance outcomes. Kim’s deliverables have consistently exceeded expectations as verified through surveys, feedback forms, and evaluations administered to those who have benefited from the workshops she has designed, developed, and delivered. A natural in front of a class of seven or a training room of a seventy, her group facilitation and training delivery abilities have helped many to better engage with the content being taught and even feel more motivated and secure with what they were learning. I look forward to the next project, especially if it will include the opportunity to once again partner with Kim Glenn and EDSI, Inc."

Kevin Sharpton, Professional Development Coordinator, TCSG

"I wanted to take my trainings to the next level but didn't know where to start. Fortunately, my company contracted Kim Glenn and EDSI to revamp our training department. She gave me concrete ideas and guidance to help me improve everything from needs analysis to post training assessments. The best part was Ms. Glenn's approach. No condescension or empty platitudes. Just actionable suggestions and sincere encouragement. It was exactly what I needed."
