Jim Kimberly, of Sapphire Consulting, tailored a Leadership Development Program to address our needs. The feedback from the 54 people going through the program was overwhelmingly positive. Jim is an excellent facilitator and has the ability to understand his audience and change track on a moments notice to keep the group engaged and participating. Our full day of teambuilding was an excellent experience as well as being FUN. I would HIGHLY recommend Jim. ”
