    "The Healthcare Private Equity Association (HCPEA) held an inaugural interactive continuing education event, and Dirk Schlimm was our speaker on the subject of “difficult conversations in the boardroom.“ Dirk was very engaging. He combined background information and many examples on the topic and had the audience participate in simulated board discussions where tough conversations are necessary. We received very positive feedback on the session!"

    Terry Woodward, Chair, HCPEA.

Dirk’s compelling stories and lessons learned about powerful people engaged us from start to finish and his sense of humour enhanced our learning experience. We now have strategies we can rely upon when we face powerful people in challenging situations. Dirk's contribution was everything we hoped for!”
