Any questions?

  1. How many people can attend a workshop?
    Groups are normally kept fairly small to optimise engagement, participation and individual feedback. The exact size of the group is up to you. We work with you to ensure all participants get the best possible value. Special rates are available for multiple workshops.
  2. Must there be a minimum number of people attend a workshop?
    Most employers want training for a minimum of five people. Employers generally find the training is still cost-effective if they only have a small group.
  3. What’s the cost?
    The cost of training can vary depending on the location and number of workshops. No matter what you pay the workshop is guaranteed. If you feel your group does not get value, you pay nothing.
  4. Are workshops held interstate?
    Yes, Frank travels nationally to deliver training.
  5. Are training materials included?
    Yes, every participant receives their own workbook for use during the day and reference afterwards. There’s also an open invitation for attendees to contact Frank for feedback in the future.

We always customise the training so please call now for a quote.
