The course was well-organized and interesting to attend. Brenda is an excellent facilitator.

She rallied the entire class as a ‘group’ who remain in supportive contact with each other to the present. In short, she brought us an excellent course that was also fun to attend.

She made use of my personal knowledge, experience, and war stories to support the lessons she was delivering.

Neil H. Williams, CMC

Senior Consultant and Project Manager, The Crocus Consulting Group Ltd.

Brenda Fay was able to reduce hundreds of pages of study material into key concepts which made conquering the study material much, much easier than I thought it would be. As well, the learning aids she provided increased my confidence exponentially.

Please be assured that Brenda Fay is a professional instructor who will go the extra mile. She is prepared, articulate and able to get directly to the main points. She uses learning aids which are appropriate. She can keep the group on track while still meeting individual needs. Her knowledge of the material is very extensive, based on years of personal experience.

I found the training provided by BrenDaniel Productions to be outstanding. They kept the training interesting and very informative for all phases of training.

Scott Guthrie

Customer Service , and Sales Rep.

Brenda has transformed my view on life and work and has helped me most with stress relief by teaching a step-by-step process that can be applied to anything for results! We came together from different departments and worked together in an open, participatory way. Brenda used examples directly from our work so that the principles she was teaching could be immediately applied.

Brenda gave three Scrum/Agile courses for Digital Nova Scotia in the last year and has had great results. She has taught participants from seventeen Nova Scotia based companies. I would gladly recommend Brenda as a solid, knowledgeable instructor.

Emily van den Hoogen

I and my partners at Dragonbridge have worked with Brenda and her team on projects they have referred to us as well as in situations where they worked on projects for our clients. Over the last 15 years, we have always found Brenda and her group to be completely reliable and highly competent partners and service providers. She is attentive to the quality of her work and to the importance of maintaining high ethical standards in the conduct of all business. It is a pleasure to recommend her and the work of her team and we look forward to continued collaboration with her in the future.
