"In our current world where everything is going virtual, you can have a preconceived notion of what to expect – or even hesitations. The Live Virtual Achievers™ program defies all notions and created an incredible experience for our attendees. Even those with knowledge of the program previously couldn’t believe how similar the experience – and celebrated the ability to receive this content in the current environment."

"I will be honest I was totally skeptical of virtual Bell and I was completely wrong! Virtual in my opinion actually stepped up the engagement. The breakouts were more thoughtful-the distractions were limited. It was easier to get back into the main session and no rounding up of tables. I also feel this was probably the most connection I have felt with Dr Bell, Bill and the table leaders. It was nice to have them in the breakouts. I walked away feeling more inspired and maybe even a stronger push to make change than any other Bell class I have attended. The movement from breakout to breakout was seamless which made the day so easy. And I will end with this Dr Bell and Bill are top notch. They are thoughtful in what they say and how they say it. They connect you to the material and make you feel comfortable talking about becoming a better person. Just impressed with the program this time around and I felt like I did not lose anything by it being virtual-if anything I felt more focused. Very Awesome!"

"The seminar was enlightening, encouraging, and extremely motivating. I incorporated the items I learned each evening and can already feel the change inside of me and how I present myself outwardly. I am forever grateful for the comments and recommendations from the Bell Team, as well as the connections with the other guests enrolled in the seminar. Not only did I learn how to approach situations in a more productive manner, I was able to have honest conversations with the seminar guests who have similar personality traits as my colleagues. I am looking forward to connecting again and hopefully can join another seminar in the near future. I'm a true Bell Believer!"

"My main concern going in was doing this virtually vs. the in-person program. While I would still like to attend an “in-person” training sometime down the road, your team exceeded all expectations with the virtual format. I was so impressed with how you managed the time spent with the entire group and with our breakout sessions. Amazing content, amazing delivery and amazing coaches. Allison was also such a “behind the scenes” rockstar. Our team is already testing ways to incorporate the features you used in these meetings with our company."
