​“On behalf of the 500 W. Madison Security Team, I just wanted to thank you for conducting a great training session. All of the officers have commented on what a great job you did. Usually, the officer loses interest but your humor and interactive style kept us engaged. If this is any indication your business will be a huge success.”
