A Note About Steve’s Training Formats:
Each class is flexible on content and length (and the training fee, in some cases). There are no class size limits, as long as the room is comfortable for the participants, the more the better. For the room orientation, Steve usually prefers five to ten people at round tables, but classroom rows or horseshoe style is fine too. (Rows of chairs with no table tops is his least favorite; people need a place to sit and write comfortably.) Steve can either use your AV equipment or will provide his own laptop, projector, and speakers. He usually only needs a screen, house sound, and for some classes, an easel pad and/or Internet access. He rarely needs a microphone, unless in your judgement, it’s necessary because of the room design. Steve provides you with the handout masters, as either slide copies or cheat sheets. For some subjects, he can distribute copies of your policies as well.
