Letter from Imago Restaurants

Dear David & Bernie,

On behalf of Imago Restaurants Inc., (President & Owner) Neil Vosburgh and I wish to thank you sincerely for the excellent management development program.

In an efficiently designed three day period you were able to give our managers comprehensive insight into the management principles of our industry. This knowledge has been put to immediate use since Imago entered its budgeting process for next fiscal year right after completion of the program. I found this year that our managers were more contemplative and more engaged in the process, and were more confident in their decision-making.

I would commend this program to any other organisation that is interested in building a more successful management team.

Yours Sincerely,

Cindy Simpson
Executive Vice President
Imago Restaurants Inc.

Simr has been a part of our High Potential Development Program for over 4 years now. It gives even our seasoned Managers a great perspective on how to keep an eye on all facets of running a successful restaurant in today’s highly competitive marketplace. The participant feedback always ends with a wish to have more time with the simulator or redo the simulation to see how their decisions would change their simulated businesses success. Glad to be working with highly respected industry professionals to help build our People.

National Hockey League Alumni (NHLA) – Breakaway Seminar/Workshop Program

“I found the workshop to be very educational. I liked the fact that it was very hands on, and I would suggest it for anyone else looking to be informed about the restaurant/bar business.”
BRENT FEDYK (Former NHL Player)

“It was a hands on approach to a look inside the world of running a restaurant, while having expert advice along the way. A must for anyone starting out in this field or learning generally the backend of business.”
RICHARD SCOTT (Former NHL Player)

“Thank you for hosting the restaurant workshop. I have a restaurant in Minnesota and it was extremely valuable for me to be around people who wanted to learn and grow in the business. The workshop had great content and tremendous value for me. I think I left with more confidence in my own restaurant management skills. The workshop reaffirmed the path I was on. Many thanks for reaching out to the NHL Alumni and for offering meaningful programs like this one. I’m very glad I participated.”
TOM REID (Former NHL Player)
