Hear from folks who’ve used Growth Myndset for their training needs:

As the Chief of a women’s health department (Obstetrics, Gynecology & Newborn Care) that prides itself on the provision of patient-centred care, educating our physicians, fellows, and resident doctors on the importance of gender-diverse care is integral to our mission.

A colleague suggested Mike would be a good fit to speak to our department at a Grand Rounds presentation. From the moment I spoke with Mike on the phone, I knew he would deliver a well-informed talk. Planning the talk was easy—Mike is a great communicator and is knowledgeable on this topic.

His session was one of the most highly attended Grand Rounds I’ve seen in a while. Mike spoke eloquently and freely, helped unpack several key terminologies, and brought to light many things we traditionally take for granted, such as an inclusive use of pronouns. He entertained questions at the end of his talk and provided several resources to our physicians.

I would highly recommend Mike!

Mike Young was an exceptional partner throughout our event planning process, demonstrating a strong interest to understand the purpose behind his speaker opportunity at our event.

He asked all the right questions to gain a deeper understanding of the audience and the ideal delivery of his message.

Mike created and delivered an authentic, actionable, and accessible presentation to help current students take charge of their future by intentionally building and curating a genuine professional reputation.

I would be grateful to work with Mike frequently in the future.
