After taking the class I'm better able to perform risk analysis. I'd recommend
Palisade seminars to my colleagues.

We really enjoyed the 2-day seminar at Palisade and found it cleared up many questions
we had about risk and probability.

The course content and presentation was spot-on.

and the application of @RISK to modeling.
Barry Zaltman, New England Institute of Art
Good balance of topics.
Lawrence McCann, Cornell University
I enjoyed and learned very useful tips at the Palisade seminar

Palisade Software Seminars
I found Palisade's consultation extremely valuable.
Dmitry Sorkin, Dimanomix Composite Manufacturing
Risk analysis within Fluor has moved up to a different level because of Palisade
training on the software.
Waymon Lofton, Fluor Corporation
Each of the attendees said that they were able to bring away valuable knowledge
from the training, and several have even applied this knowledge to current projects
already! It really puts Palisade Corporation on the list of our valued training
Benjamin Juster, Futron Corporation
I was really pleased with the day Thompson spent with us. My objective was to
stimulate activity with the @RISK software and this was achieved with development
pushing ahead on several fronts. Thompson's knowledge was evident to all who attended
and he was able to pass this on to a diverse group with widely varying skill levels.
Good value for money.
John Pitt, Managing Director, Pitt and Sherry
(The On-Site Training/Consulting) went great. Bill was very helpful in both helping
us understand @RISK and in using @RISK in our template.

a course that was so applicable and so well presented.
Debra Carle, APA Petroleum Engineering Inc.
Jim Murtha did an excellent job!
Tom Pyor, Turn Around Management, Co.
The Oil & Gas course was extremely well presented and organised; will have
Steven Broder, Bunker Hill Associates
Michael Rees did an excellent job. He has the mathematical background to explain how @RISK works, and how it can be used in practice. Indeed, the course was very interesting and helpful!
Dr. Sandra Quickert, Underwriting and Actuarial services, Hannover RE
I enjoyed the one day seminar on options training presented by Mike Rees. Mike possesses
the formal education and practical experience necessary in the use of real options
to allow him to present the material on both a theoretical and practical level and
a presentation style that made me feel very comfortable. As a result, Mike was able
to provide me with relatively easy to understand and useful approaches to problem solving
for very complex subject matters. The end result of the one day training program is
that I have new ways to approach, and a tool box of differing solutions to use, as
I think about future cash flows and their effects on business valuation for my clients
that need M&A, fundraising and capital structure development services.
William S. Conrad, Managing Director, Baldwin & Clarke Corporate Finance, Inc.
I found Michael to be an excellent instructor and extremely smart. I really enjoyed
Matt Lutz, FMI Corporation
Mr. Rees researched a problem I was having and addressed my concern specifically.
He was a great help.
Tim Stallings, The Longchamp Group
Michael Rees is outstanding, pragmatic, and empathetic to our goals. Outstanding instructor,
very accessible, down to earth, and has a way with words. He explains things so clearly.
Mike is a gem!
Alain Martin, Harvard Planner Group
Thompson Terry - bio
The training from Thompson was right on track. I learned a number of things that I
will be able to apply to my @RISK modeling right away. All of the participants spoke
about Thompson's obvious knowledge of and enthusiasm for using @RISK.
Tim Owens, Corporate Planning & Risk Management, Nebraska Public Power District
Thompson Terry was very knowledgeable and explained the process well.
Lynne Davie, BAE Systems
Thompson Terry was an excellent instructor. The class was very diverse in composition
and background using MS Project. Thompson handled this quite well.

Palisade has done a good job in hiring talented people. Thompson Terry was particularly
noteworthy ... his calm nature and knowledge of @RISK was enough to maintain control
over a diverse and sometimes demanding class.

Thompson Terry was professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Provided valuable
instruction and maintained a good pace.

my understanding of the software, and allowed me to develop my own uses within my work.
