Check out what some of our clients have to say about working with the MaxPeople team:

We have had a working relationship with MaxPeople for years, and have had success with their training programs in the past. We’ve recently had a large group of new hires into manager roles, and so chose to partner with MaxPeople to provide training on a number of topics regarding management of those people. The material covered was very thorough, the trainer engaged our group well in the sessions, even in this new virtual environment. We were left with worksheets and slide decks for the participants, and were referencing that material every couple of months to remind our staff about what they learned, ensuring the tools are used in their daily roles. The group from MaxPeople were great to work with, very thorough and professional in planning, organizing, and supporting our group through the training. The Zoom sessions were professionally run, with support in the moment if we ran into technical issues, or questions people had navigating the technology. The breakout rooms were also great for allowing more candid conversation. MaxPeople is a professional training service that provides a lot of great value.

MaxPeople is able to pinpoint the most impactful modules for the audience and create content that is unique, meaningful and thought-provoking. The delivery is engaging and participative, and I’ve received nothing but raving feedback from all participants about the program. We are looking forward to rolling out similar programs for up and coming groups in our organization.

I found the MaxPeople’s session on Communicating Effectively quite beneficial. The reasons why we often times I find it difficult to hold staff accountable, to engage them and make them feel like their roles here are more than just sitting here answering the phones. This session gave me the tools and insight on how to handle these situations. As a young manager I felt I needed something to give me the confidence to ensure everyone is doing what is required of them, but I needed to find a way to go about it properly, and Julie really gave me the procedures on how to do that. I felt like everyone in the session really learned something from listening skills, handling difficult conversations, managing time effectively, and becoming a leader. Julie was a great presenter and kept everyone engaged, she was great at keeping our team on track and keeping the session flowing.
