"Derek is an outstanding course author and facilitator. He creates a learning environment where students not only gain from his vast personal knowledge and experience, but also through specifically structured simulations that provoke high level reflection and critical thinking skills for course participants.

I had an opportunity to get their feedback and the course was described as nothing short of amazing. They had a lot of positive comments on the material and the instructor.

"As with all projects that we have worked together, and especially in the case of the Canadian BIM Council experience, I found that he conducted himself in a professional manner and with great integrity as you would expect of any business leader. The vision was exciting but the task challenging and Derek was the perfect leader to take it on. Derek's passion, effort, focus and time invested to get it started was truly amazing and the achievement significant. Our industry was changed for the better and because of his vision, Building Information Modeling evolved into a major driving force in our industry"
