This book is a compilation of great stories and practical applications for managers at any level who want to create a ‘people first’ culture. Many managers talk about engaged teams and environments, yet few know how to create them. If you are ready to be inspired to elevate you, your culture, and ultimately your business, read this book!”
Shelley MacDougall, CEO, New Reality

“Three & Jackie literally changed my life! They went from being bosses of mine, to mentors to me, to becoming close friends to my wife and I, to even standing in our wedding 4 years ago. They are like family to us! A few words that describe them would be: supportive, energetic, optimistic, loving, fun, brilliant, leaders, caring, rockstars! I am so proud of them for writing their first book called People First! I had the extreme pleasure of reading an advanced copy and let me tell you, this book will make you laugh, cry, want to go run a marathon afterwards, hug a stranger and overall just be a better leader. This book is the perfect read for any company or individual looking to take their business and leadership to the next level. I highly recommend this book and urge you to share it with the world! Three and Jackie changed my life forever in such a positive way and I know this book will change yours.”
Nick Weir, CEO, Little Owl Entertainment

“I have had the pleasure of working with Three and Jackie on multiple occasions and they always deliver. Whether it’s for an intimate group or a large workshop, they tailor their approach and adapt to their surroundings. I had my managers read People First and everyone came away with great insight and ideas to apply to their areas.”
—Patrick Laxton, Assistant General Manager, The Country Club, Chestnut Hill, MA

“Three and Jackie delivered above and beyond what we could have hoped for as a message to PGA Professionals. Given that our members work in the people industry serving golf, the presentation was extremely valuable to these influencers who lead teams. Every industry can only benefit from hearing from Three and Jackie”
—Donald Miyazaki, Executive Director, Professional Golfers’ Association of British Columbia, Canada
