Individual Evaluations & One-On-One Coaching

For small to medium sized teams, we can also meet with people individually to provide evaluations of their strengths and weaknesses, identify any obstacles to productivity, and outline personal development plans.  We gauge whether they are getting the support they need from their managers, and how that working relationship can be improved for maximum team productivity.  Upon completion provide a detailed report on both the individual and group levels, as well as feedback to the team manager on how he/she can improve group performance.

Event Planning Courses

Private Delivery of Professional Development Courses

All of the Professional Development Courses available for individual enrollment can also be delivered to your group privately, on-site at your location, as well as other topics not listed there. The same syllabus you see listed for a given course can be modified to suit a single day or multiple day training schedule.  With in-person course delivery, we engage in numerous group exercises, many of which involve case studies of actual award-winning events.  Upon completion, participants are eligible to take the final exams required to earn their ELI Digital Credential for the course.  Popular courses for private training include:

  • Event & Meeting Management Fundamentals

Having E.L.I. onsite at our US Event Planners Offsite made a huge difference. Using a moderator who understood our business and intimately knew our challenges was really effective. Howard was able to get our team to think out of the box and look at our events from a different perspective.

The workshop you gave at our first national sales meeting was a home run.  You engaged everyone in the process, gave great insight and tools for our sales managers to prospect and sell better and grow our client base.  You challenged us as a group to deliver a greater customer experience and I know everyone left energized and motivated to exceed their sales goals.
