best practice interactive workshops presentations inspire educate professional developmentWe’ve all been there. A generic, multi-company workshop, where we competed for the facilitator’s attention to answer our company-specific questions. Or a conference presentation, that didn’t live up to the “as advertised” content. The speaker droned on using a PowerPoint to remember their lines. The promised actionable idea was a no-show.

Workshops and speaking presentations should be interactive, customized to your needs, and inspire and support your teams personal and professional development. The workshop facilitator or speaker should be an expert in their field. You should actually gain actionable ideas from presentations, and new skills and capabilities from a workshop.

Why companies engage us. New projects, or a new role, often require new skills and capabilities.  Our customized presentations and interactive workshops support your investment in existing employees and their ability to upskill and achieve new goals.

What we deliver. Deep experience and proven frameworks enable us to deliver actionable best practices and strengthen your team’s capabilities.

“Before VEM’s workshop, our thinking was very tactical. Now we have some tools to help us be strategic and measure our contribution to the business.”    Jerry Levy, Vice President of Marketing – BAX Global
