It provided useful tips and information in a fun and relaxed setting and really helped give our staff the confidence to act as Kids Help Phone spokespeople in any media situation." – Lindsay George, Manager, Communications, Kids Help Phone
- "Barrie Doyle was a teacher of mine who was outstanding in his teaching methods. He took time with me to make sure I understood all the concepts that were being covered, some of which I had great difficulty with. He always treated me with respect and dignity. Now as a colleague, Mr. Doyle is an absolute joy to work with. I am glad that I had him as a teacher, as much of my work ethic was learned from him. It is true, you never know who you will end up working with in the future."
