Dale Carnegie Training
Kelli Loveless, CPLP
Senior Director, Enterprise Solutions
"I have had the good fortune to collaborate with Ellen on many projects over the past two years. Ellen is responsible for managing all the custom instructional design projects for our Dale Carnegie clients and partners. Her instructional design expertise and professionalism is evident in every client consultation as she asks questions to better understand the needs of the clients and offers guidance that leads to solutions that really make a difference for all stakeholders. No one advocates for the learner the way Ellen does, continually bringing the focus back to the end user's experience. Ellen’s positive attitude, integrity and work ethic are unsurpassed. I know that when Ellen is running a project, I can rest assured that it will be done on time (if not early) and will exceed the expectations of all stakeholders. I thoroughly enjoy every opportunity I get to work with Ellen!"

Itasca Retail Information Systems
Vice President of Customer Success and Professional Services
"The training program that Ellen has developed for Itasca has been extremely well received by all levels of our customer users. Ellen’s skill as an instructional designer is reflected in her training program being meaningful for store department personnel with limited inventory management skills, experienced managers, supervision, and system managers. She was a quick study on understanding the fundamentals of our system, but she has quickly become an expert which is reflected in the comprehensiveness of her work. Her attention to detail is outstanding; she meets or exceeds her deadlines, and is easy to work with."
"I’m so happy I met Ellen, and we get to finally work together! Our client is happy with Ellen’s work and loves her personality, listening skills, and organization. They are already planning on using Ellen for more projects to come in the future. I thank Ellen for being a great person and also trustworthy!"
Wegmans Food Markets, Inc.
Manager of Training
"Ellen is amazing! Ellen worked as a training design consultant for our company for many complex projects--and we have only the highest regard for her skills and professionalism. Ellen handled every assignment and situation with ease; she completed every project on time, and project teams were delighted to work with her. In her time with us, Ellen had to learn new systems, teams, and processes for each project --and she quickly became a subject matter expert in her own right. In addition to her excellent technical skills, Ellen was uniquely able to interact and connect with SMEs and learners from multiple areas; people recognized her expertise and her genuine caring, and her advice was well-respected. She consistently went "above and beyond"--she truly cares about her work, and that commitment shows. We can enthusiastically recommend Ellen without reservation."
