"Thank you for participating John I really appreciate it. It definitely adds to the exercise atmosphere and makes people think."
- Paul Leavitt, Manager EHS, Trident Exploration Corp.

"What a delightful seminar you put on John. I used to teach adults for many years and then I became a manager of contract trainers and had the opportunity to evaluate trainers and their effectiveness. I must say, your presentation skills are outstanding."
- Linda B. Miller B. Comm., Senior Reception, Petrobank.

"MediaReady has an excellent reputation within the Calgary business community, especially the energy sector and emergency responders (fire and police), for the thoroughness of their training programs. They work with the client to design the material so it resonates with their trainees – whether it is front-line operations people, technical or scientific experts, or senior executives -- in what to say and how to say it in all circumstances from ideal to times of crisis."
- Heather Douglas, former President, Calgary Chamber of Commerce

"You know you have put on a great course when the attendees keep talking about it, both the good and the not so good parts!! Thanks for this experience. We have all taken away a better understanding on how to handle a very important part of a corporate response plan."
- Al Sheasby, Chief Engineer, Coastal Resources

"Media Ready's Pager Service provides Bonavista with 24-hour peace of mind should a serious incident occur."
- Harold Gold, Regulatory & Compliance Technologist, Bonavista Energy Corporation

"Subscribing to Media Ready's Rapid Response Pager Service has provided Crew Energy a high level of comfort and confidence. Knowing that professional guidance and experience is available 24 hours a day is reassuring, particularly when consulting the media during a serious incident or emergency."
- Corey Semeniuk, Safety/Environmental Coordinator, Crew Energy
