Your Soft Skills for Business and Enterprise Architects was one of the most insightful and beneficial workshops I have attended in my career. Thank you for being so accommodating. I will certainly be reaching out to you in the future.

The workshop was superb. Your presentation of the material was superb and your humor was appreciated, although laughter was not heard because we were all on mute in the Distance Learning format! I’m hopeful that I can push our EA team to work on a small initiative within the next month to demonstrate the value of the framework. Ahh, those other priorities always seem to get in the way of real progress.
Many thanks for a great workshop. The week went by like the days were hours.

Thank you for a very worthwhile experience this past week. The materials, lecture and group exercises will prove most useful in my work. It helped me formalize my understanding of work I have been doing for some time.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. When we first came to the class you said that we can't sleep waiting for the next day's class and I thought you were kidding. I think you may have a chuckle at this, but truly, I have not slept a single day without doing a case study in my dreams. I am really excited to see this implemented at my work. Thanks again for your great Workshop.

As Chief Architect for United States Transportation Command, I believe that EACOE's workshop course for Enterprise Architecture Certification should be the first choice for anyone working in the Enterprise Architecture field who desires to understand the value of EA and how to practical apply it in order to improve business performance. The course builds upon a fundamental foundation of EA principles by 'teaching' the key and essential components, all laid out in a logical manner, and then culminates in a very illuminating end of course session that explains 'how' to apply the knowledge learned in the real world. The instructor, Sam Holcman, the course materials and course classroom setting, and the after class support provided thru the EACOE website are all first class (world class). This course could easily be taught at the graduate university level. However, this course does more than convey esoteric academic information -- you walk away with more than a certificate; you gain powerful knowledge of how to leverage EA to benefit your organization's business mission. Not just for IT professionals, I would highly recommend this course to operational professionals, too ... especially senior supply chain professionals (I am one, with 35 years of experience).

The class last week was great! It gave me a good sense of affirmation in the things we are doing already as well as taught me a bunch of new tricks. I look forward to sharing my and our accomplishments with you.

Great workshop! Your approach to EA will close an existing gap I had with the planning elements of EA. Here, our EA governance approach works very at the project level and has been ingrained into our culture. It's been aligning projects to strategy where many disconnects have been occurring for a wide range of reasons. I have already set up meetings with EA supporters within leadership ranks to debrief and organize next steps. I'll keep you informed as to how it's going.

Thanks again for leading one of the best workshops I've attended in my 30+ year career. Good Stuff. I'm a believer in your teaching and will do my best to carry what I learned forward! Cliff, Chris and I are already putting a plan of action in place. We will keep you informed of our success!!

Thank you for your effort, enthusiasm and passion. I found the materials and course information to be invaluable and I will be carrying the EA flag forward in our organization and in our domain.
