I really enjoy the casual interactive environment. The way he communicates creates a very relaxed atmosphere. Because he doesn't lecture, there is always discussion and when questions get asked, he asks if others have an answer creating further discussion. However, he knows the regulations and the rules and code of ethics and shows you where to find answers. It is fun and I have built relationships with people I have met in seminars that have benefited me personally and professionally.

I have participated in several seminars provided by Troy Smith and each course has been very engaging and informative. Troy facilitates each session in a very positive, professional, and organized manner. The knowledge I have obtained as a result of attending the training has given me a great deal of confidence and understanding of the presented material. The written materials provided to participants serve as a superior comprehensive resource well after the training is over.

Mediation is a field that has adapted itself to many changes. Troy Smith's top priority as a trainer has been to understand and present these changes almost as soon as they happen. His classes are informative and fun, and they continue to teach and please students year after year. He is an excellent teacher.
