We all agreed — your intensive workshop facilitation prowess and pertinent anecdotes made wading through the challenging stuff a true joy. Thank you, and we look forward to participating in another of your events in the future!”

Jay is an excellent listener with an uncanny ability to tease out the issue, pinpoint it into context, and provide real life solutions. I've been inspired to be a better leader, and now have the tools to get me there. Jay, you are particularly great at giving examples from your own environment, which solidified a concept. Thank you!

I recommend the program without reservation not only because of the content but because of the quality of instruction provided by Jay Pullins. I appreciate his sincerity and expertise, and I am inspired from his teaching. You can tell right off the bat that he lives and breathes leadership. He is a great role model and the right instructor to lead this training.

Linda Thai Schlossman, Principal HR Analyst, Office of the Exec. Vice Chancellor
University of California San Diego
Having known Jay for many years, I have personally benefited greatly from his leadership and have watched him in action as he has led and trained countless other individuals. It's rare these days to find a man who: leads well, can equip others to lead, and does so with integrity in both his professional and private life. I highly recommend Jay!

Rob Fischer, Author & Leadership Coach
It has been my distinct pleasure to know Jay for these past three decades. As a friend, his loyalty has been fierce. As an example, his life has been unparalleled. I am thrilled that he's taking on this challenge of growing up more leaders, and I hope the others find their time with him to be as enriching as my time has been.
