The Williams Group is amenable to timeframe modifications that best suit client needs. The client is responsible for consultant travel, lodging and meals.
The client company is encouraged to select at least four and no more than five of the Management Seminar topics listed above to be presented that day by the consultant. Workshops are interactive, topical and timely. The learning experience will be enhanced by a combination of lecture, educational film, realistic case studies and participant role-playing. These workshops will be tailored to underscore and highlight unique issues, initiatives and challenges specific to your workplace. There will be a Question & Answer period at the end of the session.
A Workbook will be provided to the client well in advance of the date of the scheduled workshop so that it can be copied and distributed to workshop participants. These workbooks have been licensed to the client and are for client use only.
Multiple Client – Joint Partnering
Oftentimes clients find it more economical to partner in management and staff development costs. Therefore, when The Williams Group is requested to conduct a workshop for the employees of two or more employers all attempts will be made to accommodate the joint request.
Each daily workshop can accommodate a maximum of 35 employees from the partnering organizations. The Williams Group will work with a representative from the lead organization regarding workshop location and amenities. Each company will have a separate Letter of Understanding with The Williams Group regarding their portion of the workshop fee.
Presentations and Speeches:
The workshops and seminars listed above can also be tailored and customized for a condensed 1-2 hour presentation that will highlight the most relevant and pertinent aspects and components of the subjects to be discussed. There is no limit to the number of presentation attendees.
Again, clients are encouraged to select three to four topics to be presented by The Williams Group consultant. The topics presented will be timely, topical, interesting, informational and educational and is guaranteed by The Williams Group. The Williams Group is amenable to designing and presenting specific subject matter and topics at client request.
The principal presenter is T. Hensley “Ted” Williams, J.D., Co-Principal of The Williams Group. Ted’s presentation skills combined with his command of the subject matter and his infectious sense of humor have won him accolades and kudos by such organizations as the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), the National Association of Healthcare Consultants (NAHC), International Association of Officials of Human Rights Agencies (IAOHRA), the Air Couriers Conference of America (ACCA), the College and University Personnel Association (CUPA), the California Medical Billing Association (CMBA), the Society of Professional Business Consultants (SPBC), the annual “Popcorn Forum” of North Idaho College, the San Bernadino Community College District and others.
