How ca i bring a workshop to my area?

Want to bring a workshop to your area?  It is easy.....in most cases all you have to do is ask and help host.  To host you would need to find a location big enough to hold 8-10 individual and then help promote.  The host will be required to transport the trainer to and from the airport and the training location, provide a t.v. with HDMI hook up or another appropriate means of projection for the PowerPoint presentation, and will be required to provide light snacks and refreshments.  The best part is you may even be able to earn your workshop for FREE!!    

If you would like to move forward with hosting and bringing a workshop to your area please fill out the form below to start the process.  

*For workshops outside of the United States the requirements for the number of participants required to hold the workshop, and to receive the workshop for free may be different due to longer travel times and higher expenses incurred on the trainer.
