Screen shot of Zoom training participants smiling and all holding their hands up in what appears to be a "jazz hands" gesture.

"Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise at our national conference. The 200-plus members who attended your session on Conflict Resolution and Interest-Based Negotiations rated your session one of the highest of all the workshops at the conference. You are a wonderful resource for our membership."

Sue Mackie, Executive Director United States Swim School Association
A room, with floor to ceiling windows, natural light illuminating the room, a large group of people of various races in casual clothes, are gathered, and standing in pairs facing each other, smiling during an training activity. Marc Purchin is pictured just off center.

"I want to thank you again for the incredible skill and empathetic way in which you planned and implemented the DRS staff retreat. The pre-retreat consultations were extraordinarily helpful. Your insight and perspective before, during and after were very much on target and contributed to a successful (and fun!) day with important and realistic outcomes for our staff. The feedback has been universally positive. It has truly been a personal as well as professional pleasure getting to know you! I look forward to further opportunities to work together."

Your topic “Conflict is not a Bad Word; Conflict is an Opportunity for Discussion” was perfect for the audience. Your presentation style was very personable and lent itself to the participants feeling comfortable to discuss challenging situations. All of the educational administrators in the room learned something new.
