Time: 9:00AM-4:00PM (pacific)

Imagine that you’ve just spent the day training people. You saw curious eyes, nods of understanding, smiles, and laughter when you looked across the audience. 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 are responsible for presenting information and changing 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 atmosphere for your attendees. Learn the secrets to delivering unforgettable training that keeps your audience engaged, invigorated, and able to retain information. Learn how to leave your audience with the tools necessary to succeed.

Speaking vs. Training? What’s the difference?

Great Speaking is designed to inspire and entertain. Great training is designed to change behavior. It’s very different. Unfortunately, many speakers think they can just add an exercise or two to their stories and they can be an effective trainer. Incorrect. That is very far from the truth. We’ve been speaking and training for over 30 years. Both are different skill sets.

Most Training Is Boring

Let’s be honest… sitting through professional training can be 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 and email and possibly searching for Pokémon. Their brains are disengaged, they are formulating an escape plan, and the presented information 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

You risk losing your audience and possibly your next job when you give a bland presentation without humor, stickiness, and a nod to each learning style. If you can’t deliver quality information entertainingly and memorably, your attendees won’t be 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 clearly and concisely, and teach each participant whether they are just starting or are a veteran trainer. Suppose you want to build rapport with your audience quickly, create breakthroughs for your participants, and energize them while moving them to take immediate action. In that case, this Master Workshop is for you.

Learning From the Best in the Business

Learn from professionals who are practicing their art. Darren LaCroix and Ed Tate are elite trainers in the industry, bringing over 30 years of experience in the public speaking and training arena to provide you with the edge you need to get ahead.  They are not academics; they are training professionals on the front lines. They embrace a practical approach based on years of experience, the best practices, processes, and new ideas. You’ll walk away with secrets to changing behavior.

How Much is This Going to Cost?

Great question. First, let’s take a quick look at exactly what you get.

Ed Tate and Darren LaCroix demystify the process. This “Experience” 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. This program is for you if you want an unfair advantage over your competition.

Equally as important is avoiding the mistakes they both made the hard way. You’ll also avoid the frustration most trainers feel wondering how to make their own trainings a delightful, transformational experience. Every time you train you will use the tools you pick up during these three days. You’ll also see the secrets behind creating powerful training quickly and easily. What is that worth to you? Want a gold medal in training? Train like an Olympian!

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 typical programs ranging from $3,500 – $10,000. We have made first-class transformational training fun and affordable. We can do this because we don’t work for some big company; it’s just us, with you in a room doing what we love so you can help the people you get the privilege to train. 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.

The Early Bird Advantage is Huge!

If you register 2 weeks before the workshop you’ll save and assure yourself a seat.. This applies to either LIVE Seats or Virtual Seats. Plan, and you win, and so does your friend! Invite a friend or colleague to join you. You will be able to help each other apply your newfound skills. 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?

LIVE Seat (Limited to 25)

You will be up close and personal and interacting with some of the best coaches on the planet. While attending a hundred-person seminar can be fun and exciting, you don’t get the personal attention that helps transform your skills quickly. That is why we limit the number of attendees. We want to ensure you get the attention and answers you need.


Live-stream the event to your computer. This allows you to participate in this Master Workshop from anywhere worldwide. You will also be able to ask your questions directly to the coaches. It is the next best thing to being there. Invite a friend to come over and watch with you. (You get only 1 internet connection.) That way, you will have a partner to do the exercises with.

VIP Seat (Limited to 5)

Be at the front of the room. Get personal coaching from our expert faculty. You’ll get direct feedback on your material and delivery. It is about your story and challenges to help you quickly get the breakthroughs you need.

“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.

“The feedback has been absolutely incredible.”
– Jackie Kloosterboer (VIP Coachee)

“I upgraded to VIP and am I ever glad I did!”
– Jocelyne Vezina (VIP Coachee)

Why Be a VIP COACHEE at the Train-the-Trainer EXPERIENCE 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 essential, 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!
Train the Trainer

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 trainers 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.

The bonus could be worth more to you than the workshop itself. You get the access to video replays for a year and you get the MP3s from the entire event to reinforce the learning. This is a $500 value for free.
