Dear Dr. Failure

Contributions Wanted

Public Programs


With heartfelt gratitude, I wish to thank the following organizations who had generously given me the unique opportunity of sharing my knowledge with their staff. In particular, I wish to acknowledge those who had taken the leap of faith when I was a greenhorn in the embryonic stage of my training business. I also like to record my appreciation to those organizations, too many to name here, who has nominated their staff to public programs conducted by me.
