• FAQ’s

What materials do I provide the students?

I prepare handouts for every workshop I teach. These handouts include the bulk of the material I discuss during the workshop, allowing students not to have to take copious notes while I’m teaching, so they can focus on being interactive during the discussion.

What materials do I need to teach the workshops?

All I need is a well-lighted classroom or lecture hall and a dry erase board. I don’t need any audio/visual equipment unless I’m teaching a very large group (which is more of a keynote type of scenario).

How many students do I like to teach in each workshop?

My preferred number of students is 30-40 or less. With that said, I’ve taught as few as 5 students and as many as 200, but if I’m teaching 200 students, that’s more of a lecture as opposed to a workshop.

How long have I taught the material?

I’ve taught this material to more than 2,500 students, counselors and instructors over the past 10 years, and there has been a particular focus on Career Technical Education. Some of the CTE disciplines include Architecture/Drafting, Automotive Technology, Biotechnology, Cosmetology, Dental Assisting, Estheticians, HVAC, Industrial Design, Jewelry/Metalwork Design, Medium & Heavy Truck Technology, Paralegal Studies (that’s not really CTE), Nursing, and Welding.

What kind of research do I do?

If I am teaching a discipline that is new to me, I spend approximately 3 weeks researching the material, talking with instructors, hiring managers, and often visiting actual businesses so I can then write handouts that cater very specifically to each particular discipline.

How much advance notice do I need to teach a workshop?

My schedule is often quite full, so I prefer to have at least 4 weeks’ notice to book a workshop.

What time of day do I teach the workshops?

I prefer to teach very early in the morning (starting at 8am, for example) or at night (any time after 5pm) – if at all possible. With that said, I have taught classes during the day if those are the only time slots available.

Do I have testimonials?

Yes. I’m proud to have a plethora of great feedback from students, recent grads and seasoned pros alike.

My Purpose

To help individuals forge a clearer path to finding and doing meaningful and fulfilling work

Respect for the individual

Each of us, no matter how limited our life experience, has much to contribute to society and to organizations of all shapes and sizes. When I teach my workshops and offer guidance of any kind, I treat you as the unique individual that you are.

Do remarkable and ethically sound work

Integrity remains at the core of how we excel and thrive in our work. I approach each of my workshops with energy and enthusiasm, guided by the voice of integrity and the desire to make a meaningful difference in the lives and careers of my students.

Dedication to helping the client

While the attendees of my workshops are the students themselves, my clients are the educators and organizations who hire me. I am dedicated to understanding and achieving the goals of my clients, namely successfully preparing students to interview with confidence and have a better chance of finding the work they are seeking.
