Testimonials

Deborah Sword gave an incredible and very practical presentation on conflict transformation … Deborah’s presentation sparked the creativity of the group, and elicited a long list of responses regarding what we are capable of doing to turn around the actions and policies that are currently detrimental to our environment.

We really enjoyed your facilitation style and having you share a few of your stories as well…. Everyone felt comfortable enough to contribute and thought the day was well spent… You certainly gave everyone ample opportunity to ask for what they needed and wanted.

Teaching, University Mentor

I did find the technology hard in the beginning, but after a while I worked it out. Because of the group and the online teacher I kept trying because I found it so interesting. This was top quality, the best online learning experience I have seen. My wife is taking two online courses from a university and she was very jealous of my experience. It is clear that Deborah was well trained and supported us throughout the process.
