Russ Kamis

 

 

Russ is a very accomplished facilitator – he has an enthusiastic, intelligent and skillful approach to managing groups.  He was very professional, both in the manner in which he prepared for the engagement and the manner in which he conducted the event.  He is smart, quick on his feet and insightful – in short an excellent resource.

 

Gordon van Welie

President and Chief Executive Officer, ISO New England Inc

-----------------------------------------

 

“Russ was just great.  Our forum needed some revitalization and re-focusing; Russ really delivered on his promise.  He was incredibly well prepared, and most importantly he customized his work for our specific needs, adjusting on the fly as issues came up.  Being a YPO’er himself he could really relate to our forum’s issues and our individual needs.  We will bring him back to work with us again.”

Ron Levene,

President, AMG, Ltd.

-----------------------------------------

 

“Russ integrates himself well.  In short order, it felt like he was a fellow member of the Forum Group working with us rather than for us.  His communication and teaching skills are great – and we learned a lot from him.  I rate him a “10” and I highly recommend him.”

Larry Eagan

President, Collins Electric Co. Inc.

-----------------------------------------

 

“Our forum has been together for a long time yet Russ was able to bring our new information on members we thought we knew everything about.  He did a fantastic job! ”

Edward Hough

President, L.E. Belcher Inc.

-----------------------------------------

 

“Russ has “got it!”  He kept he meeting fresh and moving.  Russ got a lot covered in one day – very effective.  He didn’t spend any time “fixing” anything that wasn’t “broken”.  Russ dealt with our issues and we will be a better Forum for it.”

 

Tom Grealish

President, Henderson Brothers

-----------------------------------------

 

“Russ was a great facilitator – a solid 10.  He demonstrated great flexibility with the group.  A good listener, Russ tailored  the event to the group’s needs real-time while continuing to keep us on pace.   I feel our group will benefit enormously.”

Dave Nicklas
President, Vista Resources, Inc.

-----------------------------------------

 

“Russ would be a welcome addition to any Forum that is looking to learn and grow.  He introduced new concepts in a non-threatening manner that encouraged everyone to embrace change.  Our Forum really enjoyed and benefited from the retreat.  Overall it was an excellent program.”

Carrie Casey

President, Casey Equipment Corp.

"Russ is a very knowledgeable, energetic and charismatic facilitator -- he custom-designed our retreat and made the whole experience highly relevant and valuable.  I highly recommend him."

Stephan Liozu

President & CEO, Ardex America, Inc.

 -----------------------------------------

 

"Russ provided us with a wonderful retreat.  Our team is young and malleable and I feel he got us off to a positive start with a strong foundation.  Russ has a great blend of practical business knowledge as well as the psychological component that I feel is a true value add.  He is also to be complemented on his curiosity, as a chemical engineering, going into the “unknown” (for me) of psychology and doing so wit diligent success.“

Jeff Detwiler

Chief Executive Officer, Martin Limestone

-----------------------------------------

 

"Russ put a great reteat together for us.  The amount of effort and thought that went into customizing our event was incredible.  I think I can speak for the group in saying that is was exactly what we needed at exactly the right time."

Jack Oyler

President , Faulkner Buick GMC

-----------------------------------------

 

“The Moderator training program that Russ ran opened my eyes to a whole new way I can help improve our forum.  The event provided me and our group a return far beyond what we initially imagined.  I very much appreciated the energy Russ brought to the day-long meeting as it really helped keep us tuned-in. Russ is an excellent resource and I highly recommend him.”

“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”

-Teddy Roosevelt

 

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.”

-Samuel Clemens

 

"Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you; be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them."

-W. Clement Stone
