In my 25+ years in business I have never seen a leadership program or core skill development that comes close to matching the effectiveness of this work. The impact has been in the 10's of millions of dollars. "

Dick Pettingill
CEO (ret) Allina Health System & Kaiser Permanente, CA

"I had the profound fortune of taking Milo's Leadership Class at Stanford early in my career before moving on to senior level roles at Bayer and Genentech where Milo became my executive coach - which he does like no other. He is strategic, insightful and has the amazing skill of being able to draw the best out of you that you didn't even know was in you! Not only I benefitted, but my entire team excelled and performed at the highest level. From navigating us through creating the strategic plan to preparing compelling BOD and C-Suite presentations that resulted in not only approval, but increased budget and staff, plus helped us identify new projects and programs that benefitted the entire organization. The entire experience was amazing. I highly recommend Milo and KnowledgePassion and have referred him to other colleagues who have experienced the same phenomenal results."
