What our clients have said about our programs

Thank you for your excellent presentation at this year's conference. The evaluations were extremely positive.

John Shonyo, past President
Healthcare Human Resources Association of MN

How would you complete this sentence? The staff retreat and planning session you planned and facilitated:

a. Put the "fun" back in fund drive
b. Yielded valuable insights to us as individuals and as a staff
c. Was a refreshingly creative and productive way to complete our annual work plan
d. All of the above

{That's right, d. "All of the Above"}

Katy Lowery, Executive Director
Community Services Fund 

It was a wonderful way for people to get to know each other and develop a sense of belonging. It truly kept everyone energized and having fun...Thanks again for playing a key role in helping our conference be a success.

Krista Lang, Human Resources Manager
Ceridian Corporation

To those who say training is boring; to those who think learning doesn’t apply to the real world; to those who feel working together can’t be fun...well to all of those people we simply say ha!...Hutchinson Associates!

Richard Cunningham
Ramsey County Training & Development

Thank you for the productive team building program. I enjoyed the entire event especially the group activities and being creative. We accomplished our goals: the team leaders’ contributing to the two year store vision and having fun in the process.

Luke Schell, Store Manager, Whole Foods Market

Observing women emerge from their shells and laugh in a gentle, loving atmosphere was a delight to watch in Hutchinson's training session. She has a unique way of demonstrating how to have fun and take life a little less seriously.

Patricia Broat, Public Education Manager, Hazelden

You were able to get people from our different organizations working as a team and having fun as they did it. Helping us build on each others' strengths as communicators will hopefully better benefit our system as a whole.

Joe O'Keefe, Communications Consultant for a regional healthcare system

You did a wonderful job in creating fun, energetic, learning experiences for the city of Saint Paul Mayor’s Leadership Academy.

Heather Sumner, Manager of Education, Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce

Thank you for the teambuilding presentation. Along with the laughter it has inspired, it has generated greater communication among co-workers and rejuvenated an already strong sense of customer service. I can't imagine what more I could have asked for out of your visit.
