James & Associates go beyond the numbers. He thinks creatively and encourages you to as well. He is one of the most committed people I know. I have enjoyed working with him and will continue to do so."

"Under Dave Erdman's leadership, Vital Learning became a serious player in the supervisory courseware industry. He updated all of Vital's core programs, adding key titles to the line-up of cutting edge courseware including: Retaining Winning Talent, Hiring Winning Talent and Leading Successful Projects. The result of his efforts helped us forge relationships that otherwise would have been lost to competitors.

He established himself as a partner to the Affiliate Network, actively helping us win business. He worked to build new and innovative ways to meet the demands of our client base. He created eZines and marketing tools to make communicating with potential clients seamless. Our firm was more committed to Vital Learning because of Dave's presence, choosing Vital from the range of other tools we could access through our tool box.

If your organization is looking for a solid business partner that will work to help you succeed, I would give D. James & Associates my highest recommendation."

Susan Stamm, Principle, The TEAM Approach®

"I worked for Dave while he was President of Behavioral Technology and BT.Novations. My experience working for these two companies led me to immediately reach out to Dave when I started Emerge Leadership Group with two other partners.

After meeting Dave, my partners and I were fully committed to retaining D. James & Associates as a consultant to help grow our business. His track record of leading many successful businesses became evident very early as he guided and coached us through marketing and sales strategies, product development, and some unplanned issues.

He has been an invaluable asset to the success of our business and I highly recommend his services to any company looking to grow in innovative ways."

Jim Wentworth, Principle, Emerge Leadership Group

"When Dave was President of Vital Learning he upgraded so many things for Affiliates, the people who sell this curriculum. In all that he did he demonstrated a very strong service-focus. He always made himself accessible to me when I had business questions and he was always interested and willing to help strategize on accounts and pricing.

Under his direction he made sure that the Affiliates had strong marketing materials and upgraded products. He thought outside the box by holding webinars that included Affiliates, giving each of us great exposure.

My experience with Dave is that he is very thoughtful and hard working. He is
passionate about the business of helping others learn and loves the art of business. He is very interesting and fun to talk to and create with - he has a wealth of knowledge and energy to share."
