If you are interested in discussing my providing in-person or webinar training to your association, agency, or employees, please use the inquiries form at this site. Include as many details about your topic or event in your initial inquiry.

My goal is to create self-paced training programs that visitors to my website are able to pay for, and access, directly from the site. I am also open to creating self-paced training programs based on my key areas of expertise — time management, business protocol, work relationships, business writing, friendship, getting published and promoting your books — through third party companies that specialize in creating apps, online training, or other electronic versions of training that can be automatically delivered over the Internet.

In the meantime, I have training programs that I’ve developed that can be administered manually, lesson by lesson, through e-mail, with or without additional telephone or e-mail communications. Here is a list of those available training programs:

  1. Six Key Time Management Lessons
  2. Four Friendship Lessons
  3. The Basics of Selling Foreign Rights (21 screen PP —Power Point—presentation, available for purchase)
