“Overall. It is one of the best programs I have attended in my 30 plus years in business.”
– Glen Ford, CEO, Green Solar Companies, Birmingham, Alabama

“Loved the communication style of teaching vs. just slides. Even with my MBA, I loved learning application of strategy.”
– Karla Trotman, CEO, Electro Soft, Inc., Montgomeryville, PA

“Spectacularly insightful. Great info for a company of any size, in any stage of growth.”
– Robert Sanchez, CEO, United Print Group, Long Island City, NY

“We were denied by about 30 banks…After we went through the program, we went to five banks, and we had three commitments for lines of credit. So the turnaround was just staggering. ICCC trained us on what to do, what to say, what to have at our fingertips when we went to commercial banks.”
Seville Staffing, Chicago, IL
