Ann Marie Mathurine, Maryland State Government

"Prior to my coaching sessions, I did not see the value of networking. But, Wow! I now I greatly value how essential networking skills are and how they can be used to help my agency fulfill its mission AND help me reach my personal career goals! I am now using the networking skills Alex taught me to reach out and connect with influential leaders to seek their expert advice AND build my reputation as an expert in my field. I was blown away by how the "seemingly simple" networking advice he shared with me had such a powerful impact. He is an EXCELLENT coach and I would recommend everyone to purchase his services. Thanks Alex!"

Mark Burt, Parks GIS Coordinator

Michael S. – U.S. Department of Transportation

Here's What Other Training Managers Are Saying

Judy Cohall, PMP, SPHR, CPRP

Montgomery County Parks Training Manager; (E); (C) 301-452-4989

Due to the 2020 COVID-19 crisis, my 4-month, in-person, leadership program was condensed to a 3-month virtual program. This was a huge challenge because I had six different contracted trainers (including Alex) that needed to be rescheduled within a 2-week period. Alex immediately told me to focus on the others trainers and that he would work with whatever schedule I needed. He then 100% reconfigured the courses he was contracted to facilitate to meet my new programming needs and ensure the overall success of my program. That was amazing and took a huge weight off of my shoulders. Once his sessions began, he was absolutely exceptional. The content he presented was interesting, engaging, and pushed all of the participants, including myself, to reevaluate what we thought were successful leadership tactics. And, although he had more than enough content to share during our time together, he always made time to engage to insightful discussions with the participants. Following his four-week training on “Mastering Political Savvy,” “Strategic Networking for Public Sector Professionals,” and “The Seven ‘Must Have’ Leadership Skills” he received overwhelmingly positive reviews from our program participants and comments such as: ‘I liked getting to understand Alex's business acumen and his perspective on leadership. He brings a lot to the table with his experience. If we have to choose one specific concept, it was the mastering political savvy. This is an historically overlooked topic in the professional development programs in our industry.’ - Shawn Beaumont, Park Manager Here is the bottom line. If you want someone to lecture about leadership theory, then you can find that almost anywhere. But, if your organization needs leaders who can practically and strategically use leadership influence techniques to effectively gain support for essential programs and operations, navigate challenging leadership situations and relationships, and further your mission, you need to hire Alex Tremble. So, for all of the reasons listed above, and so many other reasons not listed, I strongly recommend Alex’s services and am looking forward to hiring him to equip more of our leaders with these essential skills.
