What Others Say About Learning Leadership From Robert:
I had the privilege of attending an advanced management class instructed by Robert Tanner and I can truly say it was an experience I will never forget. Robert is a speaker’s speaker and his way of teaching what might be considered mundane material was brought to life by Robert's real business experience and his insights into human behavior. By the way these are not just my observations, everyone in our class felt the same way. — Richard Levinsohn, General Manager
I’ve had the pleasure to participate in Robert’s management training program provided at our company for 4 months.

He was dynamic and energetic and provided an environment that was comfortable enough for people to speak openly and freely. The management team wanted a training that provided them with practical tools to help them in their jobs. They were concerned that the training was going to be the "same ole' fluff". Robert was a huge success and everyone wants him to come back for more training. — Janet McClain, Executive Vice President
