Feedback on Steve

"Exceptional and life transforming. This training should be on every corporate agenda"
CIO Pharmaceutical, Florida

"I took BPM training back in December, and Steve Towers was the instructor. The training was simply fantastic, because Steve has that rare ability to connect with his trainees. Not only did I walk away from the training with a new perspective on Business Process Management, but I walked away with an invaluable analysis tool."
Senior Systems Analyst, Barclays Bank
