"My time at the VCOA was very well spent. From the morning PT to the evening fireside chat and all the classroom in between far exceeded my expectations. I was not sure what to expect with 40 “type A” personalities sharing experiences and sleeping quarters for a week. The classes were well structured and beneficial to today’s work environment. The lectures from Kelly and Dan were insightful and thought provoking. To break up the lectures there were group exercises, mock morning meetings, and guest speakers to help make you think. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at VCOA and believe that others will have the same experience."
