Want to help your group establish a more collaborative culture and get group decisions made more efficiently? Learn collaboration theory, tools, and techniques in a dynamic training seminar from Craig Freshley.

Craig’s seminars provide in-depth learning, audience interaction, and even an opportunity for group decision making right on the spot, right in the moment. Craig doesn’t just bring you answers. He helps you arrive at your own answers. He even provides participants with a write-up of the results; the results that the group created!

Learning together as a decision-making group helps not only with the issues at hand but with new issues as they arise. Craig specializes in training based on your specific needs and likes to work with your real life issues.

If you are going to invest in training, why not actually
solve some of your problems at the same time?

Add Value

A Book for Everyone – Consider giving everyone in your group a copy of Craig’s book. Paperbacks by volume cost surprisingly little per person and offer so much more than other giveaways. What a great value-add for participants! We can even publish a Special Edition with your logo (or a sponsor’s logo) on the cover. See sample cover to the right. Learn about Craig’s book here.

Conference Summaries – 20-60 minutes of pizzaz to end your conference with participants saying Wow! If Craig is on site, why not end your conference with one of Craig’s legendary conference summaries; a whirlwind of highlights, aha’s, and laughs? Craig attends your entire conference and then prepares a presentation of highlights that comes at the end. Instead of a Keynote you might call it an Endnote; and it’s sure to be a high note! Craig’s visual and oral presentation provides an excellent reminder of all the great moments from your conference. And of course, as with any Craig Freshley event, there’s audience interaction. If you have invested in planning a terrific conference, why not maximize chances that participants will remember the highlights and leave on a truly high note?

Small Group Discussion or Facilitated Session – Take full advantage while Craig is in town. Invite a small group of leaders to have a meal with Craig or an intimate meeting. Craig is a world class facilitator: let him help you address a significant question or solve a significant problem.
