Structure
 
Based on your organization/group's size

and goals, trainings may include: interactive activities, multimedia presentations, expert

guest speakers, role-playing simulations,

and/or small group discussions. All trainings

are facilitated by Jon with an emphasis on delivering a high-energy, high-impact, and

humor-infused experience for all participants.

In every engagement, Jon provides ample opportunities for Q&A, distributes relevant 

take-home resources, delivers an end-of-training recap with key 'take-aways' and

actionable next steps, and administers

feedback evaluations to gather essential participant insights. 

 

Logistics

 

Trainings are typically 2 - 6 hours, and vary by topic area/client needs. Clients who wish to deliver a more encompassing participant experience may choose to: (1) Bundle together several trainings to form a sequential package delivered over the course of a several weeks

or a year; or (2) Break longer trainings into

short sections, for example: instead of one 6-hr

training, offering two separate 3-hr trainings. 

 

All logistics - including format, fees, etc. - are determined on a per-client basis. Timing is flexible to accommodate daytime and/or evening hours. For pro-bono or other 'nontraditional' clients, please contact Jon; such requests are managed on a case-by-case basis.
