Default Forrest Micke?

Does anyone know much about him? He is coming to my trainers barn to do a workshop on motivation and teamwork and I'm considering being a working team or auditing it. From what I've heard/seen he seems really good but I don't know a whole lot.....

Do you guys know anything about him?

What I***8217;ve seen of him he***8217;s really good and I certainly would go to a seminar if he were around!
From watching his dogs, he certainly knows how to motivate!

He was a Michael Ellis protege, now he and Denise Fenzi seem to be cooperating on stuff a lot.

Yes, he is a personal friend. He's fun to be around, easy to get along with, a bit goofy, amazingly dedicated and he knows his stuff.

Well had the seminar this weekend and it was AMAZING. Forrest is awesome. Super informative, fun, goofy, critiques and helps without making you feel stupid. I am so sad this weekend is over I've learned so much and had SO much fun. It sounds like he *may* be returning in January and I will definitely be going again if he does. That man is outstanding not only as a teacher but just simply to watch him work with the dogs. Just awesome.

We took lots of video and supposedly there will be a collage made. If I get it ill share t with you guys :-)
