“It is clear we found the right team when we selected the Powell Consulting Group. They worked closely with us to plan our retreat and our time with them was a rewarding experience that continues to inform our growth process.”
Elizabeth Blackwell, Director of Communications

Our training solutions support your organization in implanting the knowledge, skills and attitudes that your people need to be successful. In our training courses, we engage participants with experiential activities that are meaningful, provocative and engaging. Our programs are designed to allow learners to explore the theoretical as well as practical application of relevant concepts. We apply the principles of adult learning so that lessons are easily understood and transferable. Our programs include some of the following activities:

  • Structured Experiential Exercises
  • Case studies
  • Assessment tools
  • Individual Coaching
  • Video Presentations
  • Role playing
  • Group Discussion
  • Virtual Training

Rather than off-the-shelf training, we prefer to customize our programs based on your organization’s needs, culture or specific training objectives.

From time to time you might find yourself hosting a meeting in which you want to be able to concentrate on the content and not be distracted with planning and managing the flow of the meeting. At these times, you may value having a competent professional who can manage the conversations, provide structure, maintain accountability and keep the meeting focused on achieving desired outcomes rather than simply having a series of conversations.

Although we are process facilitators, we make it a point to track the content and are astute in connecting the dots in order to steer the group toward closure on the issues that they raise. Moreover, we have the courage and skill to confront tough situations which could easily be avoided without endangering the safety that ensures inclusion of the voices of the less assertive participants. In each engagement, judiciously safeguard the prerogatives of the principal stakeholder in every aspect of the facilitation.

The Powell Consulting Group offers comprehensive suite of event and meeting management services that include planning and design, site selection, logistical coordination, process facilitation, note-taking, report writing and follow-up. Our services are designed not only to ensure that your objectives are met, but also to ensure that your meetings provide the vibrant, thematic, and seamless experience that your participants expect and deserve.

We provide speakers who inform, educate and inspire audiences at any level. Our speakers draw from their depth of professional experiences, academic and specialized learning opportunities and keen insights to create a conversation in which listeners can clearly see themselves. Coupling our warm and engaging persona with gravitas that causes people to take notice, we craft our presentations with substantive content, provocative storytelling, well placed humor and intense optimism that command the attention of our audiences. In the end, our audiences leave with foundations for clear choices to improve their lives and organizations.
