Our Events are Different

In speaking and leading workshops at conferences around the world for over a decade, we’ve learned a thing or two. First, it’s hard to learn anything when you’re one of hundreds, sitting in an uncomfortable chair, barely able to see the presenter in a massive auditorium. Second, while even the best workshops get you jazzed and inspired to apply your newly-aquired knowledge, few workshops provide enough time to begin applying the knowledge you’ve gained and even fewer provide the mentoring opportunities they purport. With these lessons in mind, we created a series of hands-on workshops that are intense, enlightening, engaging, and invaluable.

We currently offer private multi-day workshops for organizations and occasional public events for individuals and small groups.

Private Workshops

We offer both on- and off-site workshops for organizations. Typical workshops run 2-3 days, but can be longer depending on the topic and depth of coverage. All of our workshops begin with more formal lecture-style training, punctuated by small group and individual exercises. The workshops then shift into “mentoring mode” as attendees begin to apply everything they’ve learned so far while working on one or more group projects.

Here are a few organizations we’ve helped:

  • ShopBop
  • StubHub
  • UnionGas

Public Retreats

Our public training retreats are held at unique locations across the country and are led by well-respected web professionals driven by the desire to impart practical knowledge to attendees. They are focused on a single course of learning and we cap the number of registrants 18 to ensure each attendee gets the personal attention he or she deserves.

If you’re the kind of person who finds conference sessions inspiring, but leave feeling like you didn’t learn any practical skills, look no futher. Our retreats are focused on arming you with the information you need to build incredible websites.
