Douglas E. Duckett, Esq.

My organization has been thoroughly impressed by Mr. Duckett’s work.

Personnel investigations are always dicey, even moreso when you decide you need to hire an outsider to perform one. From the beginning, Mr. Duckett impressed all with his integrity, commitment to a balanced process, and his thoroughness.

Upon receiving his written report, we grew even more impressed. It was clear that he painstakingly went through volumes of documents and evidence, thoughtfully assigned weight to each given its circumstances, and drew a clear and convincing conclusion. I would without hesitation recommend Doug Duckett to any organization that needed to investigate a personnel matter.

On an unrelated note, I have had the pleasure of sitting through a number of training sessions taught by Doug. He is clearly an expert in his field, and delivers his lessons in a fun manner that keeps your attention. He has my utmost respect, and is at the top of my list when looking to hire a labor consultant.

The City of Montgomery has utilized Mr. Doug Duckett of Duckett Consulting and Training Services on several occasions to provide professional development and training to our managers.

Mr. Duckett is extremely knowledgable on all aspects of human resources and labor management and also delivers his presentations with an excitement, creativity and genuine sense of humor that allows all to remain interested and attentive.

Our managers have provided exceptionally positive feedback regarding Doug’s presentations and I believe our organization is a better one as a result of his being involved as a part of our training programs.

On behalf of MPELRA and assisting in coordinating their summer conference, I contacted Douglas E. Duckett to present both the national labor relations Legal Update, and the Public Sector Collective Bargaining Update to Minnesota’s membership.

Of course, Doug delivered superb presentations and received high marks from attendees.

Attendees’ comments included, “Doug is an excellent presenter! Knows his stuff & shares it with us,” and “Excellent speaker – it was a good overview of things to look for in the future. All handouts very helpful.”

Thanks Doug, for helping to make this one of MPELRA’s best conferences ever!

Mr. Duckett provides Human Resources consulting services.

I recently engaged Mr. Duckett to conduct a discrimination investigation. His knowledge in this area is outstanding. His attention to detail and work product were excellent.

I do not hesitate to recommend Mr. Duckett to any person or entity in need of this type of service.

Doug is a preferred presenter on Human Resource topics for the Ohio City/County Management Association, particularly at the Association’s winter and regional conferences.

He is always a very engaging and knowledgeable presenter who keeps the audience participating with thoughtful advice and examples. No matter how many times he presents to OCMA, the membership always says, “Have Doug come back!”
