Learning Guides

  • Audience members always receive a learning guide, whether it is a program outline, workbook, or manual. 
  • Typically, two to three weeks before his program, Jeff will send learning guides to you, via email, for photocopying.  When travels or current additions to the program prevent this, he will bring the copies to the meeting himself.


  • While Jeff flies first class, rest assured you’re billed for a coach fare.  Staying fiercely loyal to an airline partnership allows for this benefit (and provides a major example in his customer leadership programs).
  • Jeff typically makes his own hotel reservations as he may be working with other area clients or bringing his family with him.  Regardless, you’re billed for the lesser of his actual rate or your hotel contract rate.
  • Jeff gets himself from the airport to your meeting and back.  Whether it’s via hotel shuttle, taxi/sedan, or rental car – Jeff will be there early and at a reasonable cost.
