Trainings can range from 30 minutes to entire days. Some hire me to train for an entire week! Depending on your personal goals, we'll work together to decide what is right for you!

You may wish for me to come once and train everyone together; this is a great option for facilities with smaller staffs and large enough spaces to accommodate everyone, when the training can occur when the office is closed to customer needs!

Others prefer to offer smaller trainings throughout the week, which tends to work better when there is a large staff and/or a space too small to train everyone simultaneously. This also helps to prevent the need to close or send customer calls to an automated system!

Some choose to have me address one specific area where they have realized their business can improve. Others choose to have me provide an overall instruction on the LGBT community, including proper terminology and dispelling myths.

Whatever your needs, we'll work together to make a plan that fits!
