How far in advance should I book my PD? We book dates as far in advance as two years and as close as two weeks before. We recommend that you try for sometime in between.

Plan your day.

 A typical workshop lasts six to seven hours, including time for lunch and breaks.


After your day is contracted, work directly with your presenter to prepare.

  Share a list of your staff’s questions and concerns.

Share your experience! Your feedback is extremely valuable to us and ensures that we make the perfect match every time.

We’ll provide you with tools to collect staff feedback, to share the results, and to discuss what worked.
