Interactive Training courses

It is our instructors’ goal to create training sessions that are both interactive and thoughtful. Slides, writing activities, thought exercises, quizzes, and polls are used to engage your team, maintain focus, and promote meaningful discussion. We encourage participants to ask questions and share feedback.

We recommend in-person training when possible, however, our instructors can also lead virtual training, enabling team members in different locations to learn together.

It was as hands-on as it could be – participants were encouraged to share ideas and comments, and the quizzes and polls were relevant and captured attention. The writing and thought exercises encouraged participants to think and maintain interest. The instructor was delightful and engaging.

While the “models” KSI showed might differ a little from what we have typically used, the content and methodology were right on target. It was really excellent instruction. I used to teach how to write RFPs and evaluate proposals, and this was some of the best training I’ve seen.
