TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST PARTICIPANTS

"Attending the Train the Trainers workshop in New York City was indeed an eye opener and time well spent. This workshop took a much deeper dive than I anticipated into all aspects of instructional design including creating and conducting an actual training and techniques that I needed for learning how to be a better trainer. The workshop was very hands on and left me feeling very confident about the difference between leading a training vs. facilitating a training. It also provided an opportunity to network with others who do this type of work on a regular basis. I would highly recommend this training to anyone interested in mastering the art of training."

"I just attended the Train the Trainers workshop in Phoenix and can't say enough about it—so worth it. The presenter was very knowledgeable and experienced in the field of training. Not only did she tell us how to be better trainers and produce better training materials, but she showed us how and we had the opportunity to practice and get immediate feedback throughout the session. So often, you spend time trying to take notes and then decipher the meaning or intent after a workshop, to implement improvements based on what you were able to grasp. In this workshop, the level of engagement gave me an opportunity to walk away with very tangible ideas, specific to the needs of my organization that I can't wait to utilize. Such a small price to pay for such a wealth of information!"
