  • In-Company Programs and Presentations


      Often firms find significant advantages of sponsoring an in-company seminar or workshop based on Jay Paap's extensive range of public programs and consulting experience. It provides organizations an opportunity:

    •    Tailor the content to their needs
    •    Integrate multiple topics from public and internal programs
    •    Tailor the content to their needs
    •    Develop a common vocabulary and approach
    •    Safely discuss organization specific issues
    •    Avoid the cost and time of sending staff to public programs
    • Approach

      Based on an in-person or series of telephone interviews with the sponsor we jointly develop learning objectives and an agenda, decide on who to invite, and prepare pre-work (readings and/or exercises) so that as much time as possible is spent on application of concepts tot eh organization rather than learning basic concepts. Workshops are often followed by a half to full day review and planning session with the sponsors to identify actions they can take to apply the concepts to their operations.


    •    Half day to two day workshops
