 " It was well worth the price of admission and the 3 hours dedicated to it!  The instructor, Carolyn Stern, was fantastic!   This was one of the best workshops I’ve ever attended. I highly recommend we pay attention to these workshops SOU has to offer. "  - Brenda

“As someone who is not a fan of virtual workshops, Carolyn is by far the best online instructor that I have ever attended a virtual class with. Her classes are informative, interactive, and engaging where there are always some great takeaways afterwards. I highly recommend her workshops, as the skills I have gained are critical to anyone looking to enhance their leadership abilities.” - Carrie
