"The Future Ready Leadership program taught me a lot about my leadership style and what areas I excel in or need to improve in. The program gave me the opportunity to figure out what kind of leader I want to be and how to make it happen."

"The Mohawk Future Ready Leadership program provided me with an abundance of leadership tools, tactics and techniques that I was able to apply immediately in my career, even before the program was over! The relationship built with my team-mates throughout the program was invaluable, as I learned to work with many different working styles as we pursued one collective goal for our project – that’s what being a people leader is all about."

"Hello Michael, That was a great cross-connection course you put together. I was grateful that you were able to understand my job and to cater examples to my field of work. I found the course had a mix of different learning styles. I am a hands-on learner and found the best part was having time to take apart, rebuild and test BFs. The props in the class room were a nice touch, being able to see how they all worked made a big difference. I hear a lot of people say this course is tough, I agree but that’s because there is so much information is coming at you. You found a way for that to stick in my head and it made it to be more than just about backflows, surveys and cross-connections. You made it interesting and gave me answers to plumbing issues that I wondered about for years. Most of all it was fun. Thank you for all that you put in this, it was very enjoyable."

"I took the Building Relationships Course provided by Mohawk College Enterprise (MCE) and led by Patrick Draper in April 2019. Although I work with council and Town staff on a regular basis and have worked on Parliament Hill this course was filled with valuable information. Patrick brings extensive knowledge to this course not only from his work as a former CAO but from other work experiences he has had throughout his life. Learning and fully understanding the roles and responsibilities of Council, the Mayor/Reeve and staff, and working through real-life challenges with the guidance of Patrick's inside personal experience has helped us tremendously. From this learning, we have improved our communication and interactions with Council and staff and strive to create win-win situations for all. "
