Are you ready to turn knowledge into action? Do you want to learn why and how, not just what? Do you have an event coming up and need to build confidence and resilience among your staff? Is what you need improved retention of content, enhanced morale, or improved problem solving skills? I can help.

I offer learner centered programming based on adult learning styles, customized to fit your needs and budget, such as:

  • Keynote speech for your company sponsored event or annual conference
  • Half day and full day workshop/seminar
  • Facilitated executive and personal retreats
  • “Lunch and Learn”
  • In-house corporate training or in-service sessions

In addition, I will incorporate your meeting theme, mission and vision statement, or build on your existing training schedule to best fit the needs of your group.

Alternatively, I can help you design a program that you will lead, or I can coach you in preparing to deliver your speech or workshop. Have you wanted to expand your sales pitch into an informational session for customers? Do you have new staff trainers who could benefit from a refresher themselves on how to reach today’s workforce? Let’s do it! Let’s make a difference by infusing some energy that will yield better outcomes for you.
