Don’s clients have included the Army, Marine Corps, Navy SEALs, British and French armies, Georgetown University McDonough Business School, Georgetown University Center for Professional Development, American Military University and Wells Fargo.
Here’s what some of them have said about his work:
“Your workshop was a fantastic experience. I am going to recommend that we continue it next summer as part of our new instructor training. The use of your simple decision-making games (whether of a tactical variety or not) demonstrated that these exercises are simple but incredibly effective.
The level of enthusiasm for the course really shot off the chart in the subsequent days. After the workshop, I had multiple instructors say, “Wow, now I really get what we are trying to do.” Thank you for all of your efforts and assistance.”
~ MAJ Chad R. Foster, USMA Department of Military Instruction
“Don deserves recognition because of the immediate and far-reaching impact in our Army that he has made, especially in such a short time since his arrival last July 2005.”
~ Lieutenant General John Curran,
Director Army Capabilities Integration Center,
U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command
“Your in-depth knowledge and expertise of the subject at hand enabled effective instruction on the Battle of Antietam. Many insightful details coupled with modern battlefield comparisons, gave us a better understanding of Civil War history and how it could apply to our tactical decisions in the future.”
~ Colonel Peter Pace
(Future Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff)
You have had a significant impact in molding, bonding and assisting in making my office more effective through your day long program. Most of my people were resistant to walking on a battlefield in order to develop leadership. But after a day at Pickett’s Mill [GA] Battlefield, you won over my entire staff, and their enthusiasm is incredible for the future of our group.”
~ Andre Jones, former Pro-Football Player,
District Manager, Wells Fargo
