The BEL experience has greatly benefited several of the senior managers at APTN this year. Doug and his team have provided us with a learning experience that has helped us look at issues and challenges in a new light. The interaction with other key players in the industry was also a superb learning tool. I have since asked Doug to coach our Senior Management Team through our strategic planning process and the team is now richer thanks to his knowledge, experience and expertise. The rest of the senior management team will attend Banff 's North American Television Executive course next year.

The Banff Executive Leadership team provides practical and concrete tools to succeed in today's business environment. I especially appreciated Doug's focus on proactively shaping the future vision of a corporation as compared to reacting to the current environment.

performance. Enter the concept of executive coach.

to find and retain the 'perfect' executive. For those that
have many excellent attributes, yet a few aspects that are
threatening their success or advancement; targeted and sustained
development assistance may be the answer.
