Workshop Facilitation

Laura has facilitated numerous workshops for Fortune 500 companies and other organizations since founding Laura A. Davis & Associates, Inc. in 1995. All programs are highly interactive, experiential workshops employing accelerated learning methodologies and solid, leading-edge content. Feedback from clients frequently includes lively, engaging, and practical and useful in the description. In other words, everything we do is relevant to making you and your organization more effective in an empowering and fun way.
 
In-person workshops range from half-day sessions to three days. Teleseminars and webinars can also be incorporated into a training curriculum as needed. Laura is familiar with time-tested models as well as leading-edge methodologies and knows how to make them applicable to everyday work. Workshops address the real issues and not just the presenting problems so that solutions are created. The content and structure for a workshop addresses a specific client need so that we can establish and agree upon measurable outputs or results.
 
In short, we will work with you to tailor our solutions to meet your unique needs.
