Sawyer Training, Inc. serves government and corporate clients of all sizes throughout MN and the Midwest. Below is a select list of clients and projects.
I have had the pleasure of working with George Sawyer the past several years both at North Hennepin Community College and now at Pine Technical College. George is extremely talented in the computer technology arena both as an instructor and as a consultant.He brings to the classroom a wide range of real world consulting and training experience. He has one of a kind style that all our clients have truly appreciated it. From Fortune 100 corporations to charitable non-profits, he makes it easy for anyone to become comfortable with technology with his inspirational style and excitement for the field cannot be matched.
George has pioneered the Personal Pace Program which I am very excited to be partnering with him on. His savvy business approach has taken this program to new heights.
