- Several mid-size Canadian companies use our CFAME program as their staff-development training vehicle for top managers, smaller for-profit and not for-profits have put their senior managers through. Similarly, some of Canada’s top farmers have been through the CTEAM program.
In all cases, we get feedback that says it was a truly transformational experience.
- We also offer life-long learning with on-going intense study opportunities for our alumni each year, For example, in 2014, the Alumni program will go to and learn about Brazil, an emerging major competitor.
- Our price risk management program has been presented to over 1000 people in several countries. We train Canada’s hedgers.
Our courses are eligible for support by Growing Forward 2 for most people in most provinces. We can help you apply.
Our courses will teach you the knowledge and management skills you need to know. But they do much more than that. Through expert, practical application and the development of strong relationships with peers and instructors, people who complete our programs genuinely aspire for more and have the confidence to achieve their goals.
AME was founded by Heather Broughton and Larry Martin. Both are professionals in their fields but more importantly, they are passionate about helping others to transform their business and life by focusing on what is important - to get more done and to have more time for their personal lives. They are supported by a set of well respected instructors from both academia and industry.
