Education and Training

 

Education – Professional Development Workshops

Our education and training programs balance research-based evidence with highly interactive and practical instruction in a multi-media format including presentation, video, case study and practice.  Audiences consistently describe our “edutainment” programs as engaging, entertaining, informative, provocative and effective at building insight, motivation and skills.

Our facilitators are skilled and qualified trainers as well as expert practitioners with “in the trenches” experience that challenge common myths about what is supposed to work, but often doesn’t. This means that our speakers’ daily involvement with their subject matter informs our lively presentations. Our skills and strategies are proven effective on the ground.

We build-in the three objectives of raising insight and awareness, building self-efficacy and motivation and ensuring participants’ toolboxes are better equipped upon closure. Whether a 90-minute lunch and learn, a half-day all-staff or a specialized full to multi-day training, contact us for a free consultation about our full range of topics, your objectives and options.
