I have participated in numerous Duane Morris webinars and have found them all to be very helpful and informative. One thing I always look for when participating in any seminar or webinar is practical information that I can really use in the everyday application of my job. Duane Morris has not let me down yet. The material is covered at a fast enough pace to keep my interest, is easy to understand and sometimes has the added benefit of being humorous especially when Jonathan Segal is the facilitator. An added bonus is that I donít have to leave my office! My company has multiple sites in different states and we have used webinars for company-wide training too. If you have never participated in a webinar, I would highly recommend trying one through Duane Morris.

As Chief Legal Counsel for a large health care system, I work collaboratively with Human Resources and am routinely asked to provide legal support related to employee relations issues. Consequently, I have a need to remain well-informed and current as to employment law issues which are in a constant state of evolution. In order to maintain and supplement my knowledge base, I have found the Duane Morris Institute to be an invaluable resource. The sessions are thorough and well presented and convey information in a practical, business-focused manner which is beneficial for attorneys and non-attorneys alike. Of significant importance is that the attorneys understand that it is usually not about avoiding risk but rather managing competing risks. I would recommend the Duane Morris Institute to anyone faced with critical decision making related to employment issues.

Thanks so much for the talk today. Your energy (and the great stories didnít hurt either) made the time really enjoyable. Iíll certainly be back for another session soon.

As a regular attendee of various courses offered by the Duane Morris Institute I have grown accustomed to the very high standard of excellence in both the presentation and overall content of these classes. Earlier this year I attended the Strategies to Prepare for and Successfully Conclude Collective Bargaining Negotiations course offered by the Institute and presented by Tom Servodidio. Based upon my past experiences with the Institute I had high expectations and I certainly was not disappointed. I found this course to be extremely comprehensive, well researched and presented in a highly professional manner. It was clear that Tom had a strong command of the subject matter not only from a legal perspective but also from a strategic perspective. In my role as Chief Spokesperson in collective bargaining negotiations with multiple unions I found the course content to be highly relevant and exceeding my expectations. I believe that Tom's engaging manner and presentation skills provided an interesting and stimulating experience for all who attended. I would highly recommend this course to both Legal and Human Resources professionals who have Collective Bargaining responsibilities.

In a legal marketplace in which there is an abundance of providers of training services, Jonathan stands out among them as the premier trainer in the Philadelphia area and beyond.
His knowledge of the legal parameters governing all areas related to employment law is extensive, and his ability to convey this critical information to employers and their managers is unparalleled.
His signature style allows him to convey this vital information (related to proper recruiting, interviewing, evaluating, and supervising of employees) in an earnest yet entirely entertaining fashion. He is powerful. And he is funny.
I have repeatedly witnessed Jonathan reach employee audiences of all levels, and have received requests for his return visits (not common when it comes to management training)!
He is extremely insightful, and is experienced at working as a team with in-house counsel in order to produce training programs that are impactful and tailored to the unique needs and circumstances of the employer.
Unparalleled in his ability to communicate this material to diverse audiences in a powerful and sensitive manner.
To analogize to the oft-quoted line about diplomats, Jonathan delivers management training programs in a way that managers actually look forward to the trip.

One of the best things that has happened to me professionally was discovering the Institute. Courses offered are always pertinent to my job and provide the latest developments on the topic. Classes usually last about 2 hours, so itís easier to be away from the office for part of the day instead of the entire day. The attorneys are extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter, they provide the attendees with an abundance of information that can be utilized immediately, they answer any questions the attendees have and they have wonderful senses of humor that make the sessions most enjoyable. The cost of the sessions is very affordable. Our organization has taken advantage of the Gold Level package offered. This has provided our HR Team with the opportunity to hone their HR body of knowledge while earning credits toward their professional certification.
