  1. Tucker Kaas

    My company hired Hugh to teach us TWI JI – he is a knowledgeable source when it comes to TWI. His memory jogger on the subject is a truncated version of his workshop and it is super easy to navigate and jog your memory. It is well-organized so it is easy to jump to where you need help.

    With any memory jogger, it is a balancing act to keep it simple but also make it robust. I think Hugh does an excellent job balancing those extremes.
