Train-the-Trainer

Become an In-Demand Trainer in Just 2 Days!

October 12-13, 2017

Imagine that you've just spent the day training people. When you looked across the audience, you saw interested eyes, nods of understanding, smiles, and laughter.  You made boring material fun. Then as you are packing up your tools, the most skeptical participant, the one who started the day with their arms crossed, walks up to you, shakes your hand, smiles, and says, “Wow, I thought this was going be horrible, but you made it fun. More importantly, I get it now. Thank you.”

As a trainer you have an awesome responsibility not only to present information, but also to change people’s behavior. Even if you are not a full-time trainer, as a professional you may be called upon to share your knowledge and your brilliance with colleagues and other audiences. If you've ever dreamed of giving a presentation that wows the crowd and has attendees wanting more, this 2-day training is perfect for you. Taught by industry experts, you will learn how to create an upbeat and positive atmosphere for your attendees. Learn the secrets to delivering unforgettable training that keeps your audience engaged, invigorated, and able to retain information, and learn how to leave your audience with the tools necessary to succeed.

Most Training Is Boring

Let's be honest... sitting through professional trainings can be absolutely mind-numbing! Anywhere from 2-8 hours of being talked at by an "expert" armed with a Koosh ball and a kazoo can be excruciating. The audience is bored and tuned out. They are checking their watches, their email, and possibly searching for Pokémon. Their brains are disengaged, they are formulating an escape plan, and the information being presented disappears into thin air. But wait. . . Now it's your turn at the front of the room. Do you want to cause that uncomfortable fidgeting? Do you want to look out into a sea of blank stares?

Boring Trainers Don't Get Hired a Second Time

When you give a bland presentation, one without humor, stickiness, and a nod to each learning style, you risk losing your audience, and possibly your next job. If you can't deliver quality information in an entertaining and memorable manner, you won't be coming back.

There Is a Better Way

It doesn't have to be like this. When you attend a Train-the-Trainer Master Workshop, you will learn practical strategies to entertain your audience, convey your message in a clear and concise manner, and teach to each participant whether they are just starting out or are a veteran trainer. If you want to build rapport with your audience quickly, create breakthroughs for your participants, and energize your audience while moving them to take immediate action, this Master Workshop is for you

Why Now? This Live Master Workshop Happens Only Once Per Year

You may have heard the old adage, “Those who can’t do, teach.” That's not how we operate! Our world-class faculty is comprised of working experts. They are out on stages around the world doing what they do best. They take time out of their schedules to show you the most up-to-date insights in the industry, to give back, and to teach what they do and how they do it.

Due to their in-demand schedules, we hold this workshop only once per year. To assure that you have a transformational experience, we have two leading industry experts running this workshop.

But this is not about our faculty; this is about your transformation. So what are you waiting for? Graduates of our live events were just like you.  They were waiting. Waiting for the right time, waiting to see how it goes, waiting for their careers to take off, waiting to invest in themselves, not really sure what they were waiting for - until they attended a LIVE Master Workshop and experienced the breakthrough of a lifetime.

Our graduates overwhelmingly agree that attending a live event was the turning point for their presentation careers. These graduates say that attending a LIVE Master Workshop is the only way to get these advantages:

  • A major breakthrough of understanding that launches a transformation 
  • A change of mindset from a hobby level to world-class professional
  • Motivation from everyone in the room
  • Rapid growth from the ideas shared by masters in professional speaking
  • Personalized insights from the masters

The Results? Our Graduates Explain:

Lei Wang“During the LIVE Master Workshop, I was coached to adjust my direction and get more focused. I took action based on their recommendations. I’m now halfway through writing my book!  - Lei Wang

dave-and-darren“My feedback forms from a recent presentation I gave were outstanding.  As a result, I’ve been asked to present three more times and develop a seminar.  I can see where I applied what I learned in the training; it’s making a big difference already.”   - David Fritzlen

Jeff Purtee“One of the presenters asked the audience ‘What are you waiting for?’ It was the slap in the face I needed to get serious. I’m now working on my long-term plan to build my business.”  - Jeff Purtee

Our LIVE Master Workshops are among the best in the industry because you get the following:

  • To focus for two full days and eliminate distractions from the outside world
  • To ask your specific questions for your situation and audience type
  • To meet other serious professionals and learn from the entire group
  • A live course that adapts discussion to suit you and your experience level
  • A star-studded lineup of industry experts
  • Small audience size so that you get the personal attention you need
  • Personalized coaching to help you fine-tune your skills on the spot
  • Insider tips on how to build your successful speaking business
  • The kick you need to transform your speaking style

No one else offers this level of education from an expert lineup with personalized coaching for such a great price!

So what are YOU waiting for? Don’t lose another day.  We intentionally limit our event size to guarantee the best learning experience for you.  Sign up today to reserve your seat.

How Much is This Going to Cost?

Great question. First, let’s take a quick look at exactly what you get. The bonus could be worth more to you than the workshop itself.

If your goal is to be the best, you need the best training on the planet. While it would be wonderful to have a coach walking you through every step of the process, that's not always an option. When you save your seat, you will get our Create Your Keynote by Next Week home study course. This is a $297 bonus! Totally. Free.

Patricia Fripp and Darren LaCroix demystify the process. This step-by-step program is distilled from more than 40 years of wisdom gained from coaching professional speakers, executives, and sales teams. You will gain more confidence, more ability to influence, and more invitations for repeat engagements. If you'd like to have an unfair advantage over your competition, this is the program for you.

Stage Time University members - congratulations, you already have access to this program! Be sure to review the program to help you get the most out of this event. If you have been through it before, be a sponge again. You will get more out of it each time you review it. Want a gold medal? Train like an Olympian!

The Early Bird Advantage is Huge!

If you register 30 days prior to the workshop, you can bring a friend for free. Yep. That’s right, but only if you register 30 days prior to the event. This applies to either LIVE Seats or Virtual Seats. Plan ahead and you win, and so does your friend! The cool bonus part is that you and your friend will receive world-class training together. You will be able to help each other apply your newfound skills after the event. Sweet.

You can also share your bonus with your friend. That would help you both get more out of the LIVE Master Workshop.

Which Seat Would Be Best for You?

Dana Morgan Barnes“I got my money’s worth before the first break on the first day! Being a VIP made this training explosive. I will be a VIP every time at any training in the future.”  – Dana Morgan-Barnes, Cheyenne, WY

Why Be a VIP COACHEE at the Train-the-Trainer Workshop?

  • Teach-back (A Train-the-Trainer live event exclusive in which VIPs teach the teachers)
  • Personalized, customized coaching to make your training stick
  • Content makeover. Being entertaining is important, but it's not everything.
  • Video of your presentation with both peer feedback and Darren’s/Ed’s feedback
  • Teach-backs will be filmed and used for home study course training materials, featuring you forever!

Here is what past Workshop VIPs have said about being coached at a Master Workshop:

Terry Begue“I now have so much more confidence.” – Terry Begue

Gary McKinsey“When I’m coached, I internalize new techniques. The benefits are quick and lasting.” – Gary McKinsey

“Getting coached forces you to risk, which ultimately pays off.”

- Dave Chase

The other cool part of being a VIP COACHEE is that everyone in the room will become like a mastermind for you and your material. It’s like having a room full of presentation coaches helping you with your story.

So, What's the Investment?

Great question. What is your time worth? What if you could create better content faster? What if you knew how to handle tough audiences and keep them engaged for the entire training? If you do a quick search, you’ll see that typical train-the-trainer programs range from $5,000 - $10,000.

Not here. We have made first-class transformational training fun and affordable. How? We don’t work for some big company. It’s just the two of us  doing what we love so you can help your audiences. We are not sending some average trainer for you. You will be with 2 industry experts who have been training trainers for over a decade. You won’t look at training the same way again, Darrenteed.
