We are here to help you.
One day at a time.
We specialize in delivering your training content to your audience.
Companies are comprised of people. People who, sooner or later, need new skills, understanding, and knowledge.
Today’s training strategies are as varied as the people they seek to train.
Occasionally, your company will find that it has gaps in its training program, either in knowledge or bandwidth.
When that happens, you need a way to quickly fill the gap so that your people don’t lose momentum.
Delivering the training is the most important step in the training process. It needs to be done professionally and with the participants’ unique needs in mind. We want your audience to leave your training sessions feeling empowered, confident and eager to put into action the concepts and skills they just learned.

What our clients and attendees are saying…
Thanks for teaching me the ropes! I feel much more confident with the program.
This is a tough subject to keep engaging for 7 hours, and the instructor (Heather Archer) did a great job.
Excellent class! Instructor was fantastic! She kept a perfect pace. It was not overwhelming, but did not get redundant or boring. She answered all questions thoroughly and was exceptionally patient in dealing with the wide array of skill levels of the participants.
Instructor made good use of time, wasn’t rushed, explained material really well, very knowledgeable and provided useful tools. I got a lot out of the class.
Heather did not rush nor ignore questions for beginners. She was professional and understood the level of each student.
Heather was great, she had great chemistry with everyone and kept everyone motivated and involved. Thanks Heather.
Heather was great, definitely made a potentially painful day-long online course enjoyable
Over all class was informational and well timed. Heather took the correct speed to flow through a web class to get us the information we needed and allow us to be hands on.
I liked how Heather asked all participants at the beginning of class “what do you think your Word skill level is on a scale of 1-10?” This allowed her to know the audience and also allowed the participants to understand the skill level of their fellow classmates. HELPFUL.
Excellent instructor — would definitely take a class from Heather again!!
I wasn’t sure about how the webinar class would work, but it worked out great! Thank you, Heather(Teffy)
I wish I had taken this training sooner, it was so helpful and Heather was great!
This Webinar is so cool! Very convenient taking this class while at home drinking my ice tea as well.
It was fantastic having this course online because I was able to follow along on my Mac from home. This is not an option for in-person trainings. I do a lot of my work at home because I prefer Mac so this was an excellent opportunity. —and it was a BONUS to have it taught by Heather!
