"UpSwing's services helped my team function at a higher, more effective level with better communication with both our internal client groups as well as our external customers.  We were even invited to share our successes at the 2017 CS Week Conference as a result of their work and guidance."

"[Our Upswing speaker] tailored the program exactly as requested. It was perfect."

Scott Burnett
Regional Vice President

"[Our UpSwing speaker] has been a favorite at our annual environmental and safety conferences for several years now. I have been impressed by her flexibility to make a presentation on a topic of our choosing, or if the topic is left up to her, to select a topic that is timely and relevant to our group. She is entertaining and always injects some fun into an otherwise dry technical meeting. Meeting evaluations overwhelmingly include requests to bring her back the following year."

"Increased morale. Created buy-in of the team in operating differently in the future-- to aid in both operating more efficiently as well as minimizing conflict with another unit. Allowed my team to take more responsibility for their unit's functions, reducing the level of oversight needed on my part-- reducing stress for all."

"I must say that when we met some four months ago I was skeptical about that value I could achieve from personal coaching in this area. Looking back, I feel it has been one of the best investments I have made."

"I can tell you with 100% certainty that it [UpSwing training] is making a difference, as I have an appreciable increase in complimentary letters and phone calls from our customers following the training."

Spire Energy (formerly Lacelde Gas Company)

"Quite honestly I can't point to anything that could have been done better. The UpSwing staff are great to work with and very helpful and on the ball. From the feedback forms it is apparent the facilitators did an outstanding job and the information provided was relevant to those in attendance. UpSwing handling the logistics is a huge load off our operating groups and very much appreciated. The feedback says it all. The marks were incredibly high, as they have been in the past. The written materials were on point and relevant and the facilitators were engaging and well-received by audience members. The debrief meeting provided a good overview of program and results and the summary materials I received provided a greater understanding of the benefit this training provided.

Ameren Energy Delivery Missouri

"Our work group was formed from a merger of four companies.  Although we were all in the same business, the companies we came from had different communication styles and cultures.  Our facilitator took time to get to really know us and helped us really get to know each other.  She helped us recognize how best to communicate with each individual on the team.  The class was energetic, fun and really helped to get our group on the same team going in the same direction.  Now we are a cohesive team who work together to help each other achieve the group goals."
