How We Work
Classroom Instructor-Led Training (ILT)
Instructor led workshops give students an opportunity to apply learning immediately and receive coaching from our professional instructors. Every certified instructor we place in the classroom has real-world business experience and is skilled in coaching, facilitation, and keynote speaking.
Led Training (vILT)
When travel budgets and geography separate the group, it doesn’t have to prevent professional development. iSpeak has been a pioneer in virtual Instructor Led Training (vILT). We worked with our customers to find the right tools, curriculum and delivery format for the greatest results. Virtual workshops are limited to 10 students, include interactive student activities, and provide immediate live coaching.
Sometimes you need to get smaller bits of information out to a much larger team in a shorter period of time. iSpeak delivers live instructor-led webinars for up to 100 attendees. We limit the scope of content and the time to create a fun, impactful and interactive experience for you. Participants are given opportunities to answer and ask questions throughout the session. Each webinar is delivered in a 1-hour format.
