Testimonials:

"Jan Yager provided a keynote presentation on "Who's That Sitting at my Desk? How to Succeed by Mastering Work Relationships" for the Military Librarian's Workshop. Approximately 250 individual representatives of the military, Department of Defense civil servants, contractors, and commercial vendor groups attended the conference. The insights Jan shared provided a good start point for the conference and the day. Her enthusiasm sparked others to consider how they might incorporate some of the concepts into their own library setting. The presentation also provided some specific experiences that could be used and reflected upon by the librarians attending. Jan was a a large factor in the success of the conference and her presentation was mentioned many times in the evaluations as one of the highlights of the conference. She has earned our gratitude and appreciation."--Sandy Bradley, Workshop Host

"Dr. Yager presented a terrific and insightful time management seminar to the Department of Veterans Affairs. The audience was our Academic Affiliations office and they were all impressed with the content and delivery of the program. In the months since the program was delivered, I have checked with the participants periodically to find out if the material has stayed with them. Everyone to whom I have spoken has used a large portion of the techniques they learned in Dr. Yager's presentation."
--Jim Pritchert, (former) VACO Education Service Representative/training administrator

"Thank you for putting a 6 hour seminar into a 1 hour presentation. Great job!"
--John Cardinal, Risk Manager, MTV Network
