Presentations and Training Programs FAQ

When are you coming to my area?

We provide seminars and training programs when individuals, groups, schools, business, agencies or organizations contract with us to come to their community. This group or individual assumes responsibility for the location of the seminar, publicity and so forth.

How do organizers publicize your seminars and training programs?

One secret to a successful event is getting the word out. Another key is giving people something of value for registering (e.g. All of our participants receive Power Point presentations and access to our web site for further information).

Successful organizers make phone calls, distribute flyers and send news releases to local newspapers. Organizers also often arrange for us to be interviewed on local talk radio shows a few weeks ahead of the program - this is a good way to get the word out.

We post notices about upcoming seminars and training programs on our web site and we build a separate web page for each event that includes answers to questions about the agenda, registration, directions, accommodations and what to see and do in the area.

How do organizers get money to fund your seminars and workshops?

Individuals, schools and organizations find creative ways to fund our training programs. Some organizers get financial assistance from companies, hospitals, medical practices, non-profit associations, bar associations and law firms. Others get support from their state parent training information center, protection & advocacy agencies, school districts, and/or state departments of education. Still others charge a fee for registration which covers program costs.
