"I recently had the pleasure of being part of a training group being facilitated by Mal Short and was able to observe him close hand over a two week intense training course. I found the program stimulating, educational and importantly relevant to the purpose and ideals of the company he represented.
He is a committed, hardworking, confident trainer and facilitator with the ability to adapt a program to the needs of the group or an individual requiring special attention. His assessment was constructive, insightful and very beneficial to ensure the learning can be applied into the future.
I can only admire the clarity of his diction, his acuity in front of an audience and his capacity to weave people into a discussion. I thank Mal for his enthusiasm and encouragement; it was a delight to work with a true professional".

Mal intimately understands the concept of "customer focus" to actually meet clients "business benefits" Many of the sales and management methodologies adopted by clients have been developed over years of "customer focused selling". This principle has achieved outstanding results not only directly, with software and solution sales over $5M in Queensland in recent years, but also for other organisations since. This customer focus to meet and exceed clients expectations is also echoed in client testimonials.
