(Online Home-Study Course)
“Despite my speech coaching background, I am only now diving headlong into the training arena. My gut feeling is that this program will save me a minimum of 3 to 5 years of trial and error learning. That fact alone makes this teleseminar series worth at least 100 times what I paid.”
– Michael Davis, The Speaking MD

WHAT are people saying about Train-the-Trainer?
“Thank you so much for the outstanding Train-the-Trainer program. After all of these years, you and the other Champs have raised a high bar of expectations for yourselves, and as is customary, you have exceeded expectations. From Week 1, with the introduction of Tony Jeary’s 3D speech creation worksheets, to Christie Ward’s in-depth analysis of the DISC audience profiles, all the way to Week 6 with Craig and his World Class Back of the Room selling tools, I took valuable information from each session, tools I can immediately put to use. Despite my speech coaching background, I am only now diving headlong into the training arena. My gut feeling is that this program will save me a minimum of 3 to 5 years of trial and error learning. That fact alone makes this teleseminar series worth at least 100 times what I paid. Knowing how you strive to make each program better, I eagerly look forward to the next program you release. Thanks as always for your dedication to helping us become the best speakers, trainers and coaches we can be.” – Michael Davis, The Speaking MD; Certified World Class Speaking Coach; Co-Author of the #1 Amazon Best Selling Book World Class Speaking in Action
“Excellent program. I learned so much. It introduced me to very useful concepts in an easy-to-understand way. The format was very enjoyable. Time zone challenges meant I didn’t get to the live session. I looked forward each week to listening in on my own time. All the presenters were top class. I am looking forward to using many of the things I learned in upcoming training sessions and in my work as a college lecturer. Accountability partners, keeper sheets, identify and understanding audience behaviours, energizers and activities …the list goes on!! Ed, thanks for a great course.” – Christopher O’Byrne
“Over the 6 weeks of completing the Train-the-Trainer Program, my presentations have gone from good to GREAT. Each lesson provided value, sometimes things heard before but I never used, new ideas. Having an accountability partner worked well – it was great to have someone to bounce things off. I am really sorry it has ended, and I am looking forward to the next one.” – Jackie Kloosterboer, Published Author and Professional Speaker
