Here is what these organizations have to say about the 4MAT Model.

“Through 4MAT, we now have a common language for the communication and delivery of information. It deepens our ability to connect important information to our students and make learning more  meaningful.  Understanding how people learn has transformed the way we teach – and that has made all the difference.” 

Virginia Meyer, VP Education, Aveda Corporation

“All twenty-four people who attended the first 4MAT training session are now disciples of this methodology.”

David Horth, Program Designer,  Center for Creative Leadership
