"Excellent presentation -  very crisp and effective ..." 

"The seminar was very practical and addressed our needs ..." 

"I came away with some new ideas and ways of thinking ..." 

First Place Learning provides effective seminars and presentations designed to increase performance and produce desired results. Our faculty members are available to speak to industy groups and conferences.

All First Place Learning seminars are delivered in an effective manner, emphasizing practical "hands on" experiences. Students receive the benefit of practical advice from experienced instructors and well designed course materials. Courses can be conducted specifically for your organization in both in-house and off-site formats.

Fits Your Needs
Examples and contents can be tailored for the needs of your specific organization and/or project.

Save Time and Money
Avoid or reduce travel related expenses for your staff. Economically train your whole team instead of just one member.

Builds The Team
The team shares and understands the same information. Sending one "lone scout" to a seminar is not as effective as the team approach.

Personal Attention
Gain the needed information from the seminar trainer through team and one-on-one sessions.

Training When You Need It
Conduct the seminar when you need the training not when public events happen to be scheduled. We believe that training is most effective when it applies directly to tasks immediately at hand. Project Kick-offs produce better results when the entire team "gets on board" and has a shared understanding of the project.

    Learn By Doing
    We believe in learning by doing and have designed our seminars accordingly. Our skill building seminars include opportunities for "hands on" experience. Seminar participants are immersed in practical applications and experiences so that they are ready to be immediately productive in projects upon returning to the job. In fact, the project can be launched as part of the seminar.
