Rave Reviews

Mr. Weinstein brought ethics from a lofty ideal to a pragmatic approach relevant to business management decisions. His background and experience provided insight and credibility to the presentation and launched many very interesting discussions. Of the many ethics courses I’ve attended, this one has been most applicable to what I really do in professional life.
