Here's what past learners are saying:
How long does the training take?
For agency teams, there is usually a 1-2 week Discovery Phase before training begins. This helps us customize the cirriculum to meet your team's needs. Then, the program takes place over eight, one-hour sessions spread across two, four, or eight weeks.
How much does it cost?
For agency teams, there are usually one or two, one-time discovery fees to customize the program. After these fees, the program is priced on a per-participant basis with discounts for more participants.
How do participants join the training?
The entire program takes place via live, two-way video conferencing. We currently use Zoom for both agency teams and freelancers.
What does a session look like?
Each session is broken down into three parts:
Do you train on PowerPoint, Keynote, Google slides, etc.?
Most of the principles we teach can be applied to any tool. However, we do prefer to teach to PowerPoint as it is currently the industry standard. Google Slides is a great collaboration tool, but a poor design tool and Keynote simply isn't widely adopted enough.
Why spread out sessions over several weeks?
Our brains need time to process and practice new information. Spreading out the sessions over a few weeks is not only academically proven to be effective, our past participants also agree that spreading out sessions is very beneficial.
Why train in small groups?
Small groups of four to six are proven to be the most effective at encouraging participation from everyone. Particpation leads to more transformational learning.
Do you conduct in-person training?
Not currently. This totally goes against our belief that professionals shouldn't need to press pause on their projects and travel to a single location for training.
Can we do all eight sessions in one or two days?
We definitely do NOT recommend this. It's too much for the brain to process at once. If you want real, lasting transformation - trying to cram it all in at once will not accomplish that.
Is there any homework?
For agency teams in the discovery phase there is about 15-30 minutes of homework per particpant.
What disciplines is the program built for?
Almost every major agency and marketing role.
Account and client services
Strategy and planning
Insights, data and analytics
Digita and social
Do you have different programs for different skill levels?
No. Our program is built for everyone, regardless of skill level or seniority. If you've been building decks for 10 years or 10 days, the program will still be wildly beneficial.
Do you have any shorter programs?
No. Eight one-hour sessions is the mimum amount of time needed to realize actual transformation of all skills needed to create better client deliverables.
Do you train on Public Speaking skills too?
Not really as Public Speaking coaches and programs are a dime-a-dozen. Our programs focus on the building of deliverables - storytelling, writing, and design.
I don’t work in marketing or advertising, can I still take your training?
Yes, any professional knowledge worker will benefit from our training.
