What Listeners Say About

The Engaged Club Podcast

"Just wanted to send you both a quick note to say thank you for doing this podcast. I found your podcast back in February and binged listened in 2 days.

As a new manager at a brand new (startup) facility, I find these topics incredibly insightful and very helpful as I get comfortable in my new role, as we build our membership and shape a memorable experience. Ive taken lots of ideas that you have both shared and put them into practices and have seen them pay dividends already."
