Testimonials

"I have had the pleasure of working with Greg Smith through the BioNetwork for many projects over the last five years. He has designed and facilitated courses that range from general aseptic behavior to specific manufacturing process.  Greg's industry experience and "real-life" examples add depth to the courses, while his passion for the Pharmaceutical Industry generates excitement for learning. "
- Tracey Naumuk, Performance Development Trainer, Grifols
"I have known Greg Smith for quite a long time, since shortly after the BioNetwork came into being and have used him for industry training on numerous occasions.  He has always had a talent for transferring the knowledge and experience he has into a format that allows trainees to internalize and apply the skills being taught.  His manner in the classroom is approachable and congenial; consistently, trainees comment on that fact.  The experience he brings into the training environment is invaluable and utilizing methods (games, interaction) reinforces the concepts.  Greg is someone that I personally and professionally hold in high regard.
