them. It is an honor to be your friend."
Executive Vice President of Human Resources, Viacom Int'l
"My experience with TTG was terrific. I was fortunate enough to
work directly with Dave Bowman, who was enthusiastic, helpful and generous
with both his time and wealth of knowledge about the professional world.
I learned a great deal from the program – about myself, resumes,
letters, interviews, and about confidence and making the choice that's right
for me. Thank you very much for giving me this wonderful opportunity.
I would highly recommend Dave's group to anyone looking for career guidance.”

in a (job) market like the one that exists today."

attention, and point the way to accommodate those demands."
Client from Academy of Television Arts & Sciences

how this tool can provide valuable information to 1) individuals for career
planning, 2) groups or teams for conflict resolution and coaching, and
3) companies for recruitment. I was surprised at the fun and entertaining
way in which the feedback was presented – Mr. Bowman has quite a
flair for the dramatic."

"Just a note of appreciation for your energy and support during
my recent job-search. Your sense of humor helped alleviate some of the pain and
frustration during depressing periods. Certainly the program is a well
thought-out one, but it is ultimately your personnel who make it work.
Congratulations on having fine people on you team."
Executive Vice President, New Regency Productions; client

have been similarly impressed."
Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Sony Pictures
Entertainment (Columbia/Tri-Star Pictures)
"I would like to thank you again for all the assistance you offered
me. During my transition, I had the occasion to take a step back and
professionally look at myself in a different way. I was able to objectively
analyze my strengths and weaknesses, and determine the type of
environment in which I would best be suited. And most importantly, I was
able to determine what would make me happy in my career. Through the
dozen or so interactions I had with you, and through the very informative
tapes and reading, I was able to honestly answer many of the questions
regarding my career goals. From each session, I was able to come away
with a new understanding of what will make me happy, and concurrently,
how I should present myself during an interview.
The final result was that I found a better job, paying
more money and fulfilling all of my career needs. You were instrumental
in my achieving my goals and ultimately finding my new position. The techniques
outlined in your program do work, to which I can truly attest."
