KM Today


Our Presentations

Professional development that doesn’t use a shotgun to hit the mark.

Your staff takes learning seriously. It’s how they keep their skills up-to-date and their minds attuned to new ideas. But courses and workshops can’t take into account your organization’s strengths and weaknesses, its needs, its direction unless they are designed specifically for you. Why should your people risk spending their time learning techniques at which they already excel when they could be moving forward?

We teach courses and workshops on topics that matter; and those courses and workshops can be very valuable experiences. But we also offer clients learning events that, like all our services, are tailored to suit them. We believe that the client-specific approach is the most effective, because we understand that your organization’s identity is an asset it cannot afford to neglect. What works best in one case cannot simply be applied indiscriminately. Contact Dysart & Jones to find out how a half-day session or three-day intensive learning experience can be designed to meet your needs.
