Student Comments Concerning our Workshops
The workshop was informative, quick paced and very interesting. Richard kept
things moving, interjecting humor and used personal interests and things close
to home to keep our interest.
The workshop was excellent! I learned more useful information from this workshop
than any I have ever attended.
Richard was the best: Part computer geek, part stand-up comic. Never a dull
moment. Always Helpful. Gave personal attention. Covered it all.
Census data boring? Census website too hard to navigate? Not after this training.
Fast, fun, informative. The trainer has superior skills and is eager to share
these with each participant.
I had no idea how valuable this class would be! I feel armed to write successful
government proposals now- something I’ve never done before. Thank-you!
I was so thrilled with the GIS skills that I learned. Literally made me laugh and dance in my seat!
My bosses will squeal with delight the next time I give a board presentation. I learned skills that will be invaluable in future projects and day to day activities.
I can’t wait to tell my mom I live in a neighborhood that is 60% men,
highly educated, and has high median family income. Now she’s really going
to be demanding of my boyfriends.
Not only the content was extremely valuable but the organization, pace, and
delivery was superb! I did not want the workshop to Finish. I’d definitely
sign up for any class taught by the presenter.
This workshop was very useful- I would recommend it to anyone who needs to
quickly and easily access census info and especially for those who know they
could do more with the data if only they could access it! I will continually
share everything I have learned with my colleagues.
Fun! Energizing! Informative! Deep Training! Wow!
Who thought looking at census data for seven straight hours would be so much
fun and informative? Richard made it so!
I wish every social services agency had access to this information- excellent!
The workshop was well organized and well presented. It’s full of useful
information and the take home products make it all easily available later.

how to make a more focused search for what I needed.
