“No testimonial will ever come close to explaining the impact this FTX had on my team of subordinate leaders and myself. This was a career/life changing experience.” 

Gary Bright

“FTX was the best leadership training I have ever received; it was a high stress, real world environment, that forced me to use the 4 laws of combat to succeed. The EF Team was able to illustrate in real time the importance of leadership and how the execution of the 4 laws of combat is imperative to success in business, but more importantly success in day-to-day life.” 

Guinness McFadden

“In my 20 plus years I have been through many leadership classes- Bell Leadership, Ken Blanchard Situational leadership, and Pacific Institute just to name a few. That being said, I have never been through a training that was as impactful and life changing as our last leadership summit with Echelon Front. The take a ways from the EF FTX training and leadership summit were great. During the FTX training I realized how imperative clear, simple communication can be and it can make or break a team. I decided at that moment I would make sure our teams started simple and clear communication.”
