Our Favorite Venues for Events

When considering a training venue, it is important to look for a few key qualities. Firstly, if possible, your training venue should be in a central location that is easily accessible by public transportation or car. The facility and space itself should be a clean, roomy, inviting environment that has comfortable seating arrangements for all attendees, presenters, and facilitators. Be sure to check and see the types of presenting materials the venue has at its disposal. A few tools to ask your venue about include access to a whiteboard, projector, flip charts, and secure wifi. The lighting in your venue should not cause glares nor shadows on your visual presentation and the temperature of the room should be comfortable and conducive to learning. Lastly, your training space should be in a venue that can ensure that noise and any other disturbances will not occur throughout the duration of your training and presentation.
