“My company has been working with TheNewtonGroup for the past 6-7 years and from the very first session our Leadership Team began its transformation. Sam Newton was our Leadership Development facilitator and to say that he has had a profound positive effect on our Leadership team would be an understatement. Working with Sam and TheNewtonGroup was one of the best decisions that my company has ever made. As for me professionally, I am becoming the leader that I have always wanted to be. Leadership development is never ending but Sam has taught me the tools and has helped me build a strong foundation that I can improve upon. As for me personally, I have gained a great friendship and I am proud to call Sam my friend”. Stephen Rourke, Claims Manager, Wawanesa Insurance, Edmonton, Alberta
"The program that The Newton Group developed for us was very successful. I found that our core management group became more cohesive and addressed our issues and successes on a more timely basis. Through the developmental course and team building activities we became a management team that was headed down the same track, while not only improving our employees work environment but learning how to handle personnel and counterparts that we didn’t always agree with. We got to know each other on a whole new level and we had a much better understanding of how we could accomplish our goals together, which in return was positive to our bottom line.
For our new people who were being developed as tomorrows managers, they learned a great skill set from the get go which made it much easier to accept and prosper new ideas of leadership. Today it is this group of people that is driving that train with greater success down the track at a much higher speed." Roger Matheson, Past Exec. VP, Smith/Schlumberger
"I was tasked with finding high-level leadership training for our senior management team.

Sam Newton and TheNewtonGroup, offered just what we were looking for! With the quarterly all-day sessions, we have gotten to know each other and ourselves better. We are newly equipped with skills and confidence to lead the company’s changes." Ruby McDavis, Human Resources Manager, U.S.Vets
