"I just wanted to take a moment to rave about the FREE teleseminar on Prospering Despite a Downturn Market.

To think I almost missed the call! My head is spinning since the call ended. I wish I had been more prepared to take notes, because the ideas that were suggested were nothing short of brilliant. I honestly did not want the call to end. In short, I learned easy ways to increase my exposure in the market- place during a market downturn, without spending a lot of money or dumping my last dollar into advertising. I think this could be a 10-part series, and I know that I wouldn't miss a single one. 

What a great class ... thank you!"

“Thank you, thank you, thank you for offering FREE teleseminars through CDI. I’ve found the calls extremely professional, insightful, and jam packed with valuable information. I’ve paid for many a teleseminar and received far less ROI. CDI makes a huge difference! Kudos for offering great topics and exceptional presenters.”

“I had to write and thank you for the fantastic teleclass: Overcoming Your Money Hang-ups. Every CDI teleclass I’ve done so far has been extremely helpful and relevant to my career as a resume writer, but this one was a revelation…it blew my socks off! So thank you so much for this amazing teleclass. I know it will affect me in many areas of my life from now on. It would have been worth twice what I paid for my yearly CDI membership, only it was free! So thank you...”

"I am a huge fan of the CDI teleclasses. 

Initially, I started listening in as a networking tool to meet other career professionals. I have quickly discovered that CDI teleclasses are having a profound impact on my business. I hang up from every teleclass with at least one nugget of information that I can share with clients. More importantly, each call has provided me with at least one money making idea to help grow my business. For a new company, revenue is everything. 

I can honestly say that these teleclasses have paid for the annual membership dues."

”WOW! The Linkedin Buzz call was better than you advertised, really. The facilitator was clear, direct, and knowledgeable. Making the site user friendly for me means I can better serve my clients. Thank you for making this happen. My CDI membership is priceless.”

“I just listened to the LinkedIn Buzz call recording and LinkedIn's PR Rep, Erin O'Harra, led a super informative session.

As the 2nd Place Winner for the 2011 Best LinkedIn Profile TORI, I considered myself up on all things LinkedIn yet I still benefited a great deal by listening to this hour long session…and now my clients will benefit too!

Thank you for bringing us such fantastic expertise once again.”

“Thank you for putting together the series of free teleclasses on many pertinent topics for members.

This is exactly the kind of activity I think true learning organizations should be supporting. It gives members the benefit of others’ expertise and visibility to those doing the presentations.

So glad to see it as a regular benefit to membership.”

"What an amazing call with Eric Enge for the Tactical Biz-Tech Buzz series!

I was a little concerned it would be way over my head and full of tech babble. Instead I got great nuggets of real world bottom line information in an area that can be totally overwhelming. Eric gave generously of tools and examples in a way that even the non-technical could understand (I’m proof.). Yet, he also dived deep when a listener question merited it.

If CDI were charging $50 or even $90 for these calls, my partner and I would have had half a dozen action items/tools, each of which would have been worth the fee. I know it was a really full call and it was clear people were taking a lot of value."

“Many thanks for today's Next Practices call ... and all the others I've been privileged to attend. I love the give-and-take of these conversations. Lots of valuable information from "the front lines," from multiple perspectives, offering thoughtful information and advice. Please keep up the good work!”

  – Debbi O’Reilly,

"I really loved the call today with the four experts (Janice, Laura, Audrey and you). It was really and truly eye-opening to hear everyone's take on client service and boundaries.

I learned a tremendous amount. I know I'm already a huge CDI ambassador, but my goodness, it's truly amazing what you offer the members for FREE!  Amazing."
