Feedback from our Training Participants:

  • “Training was great, user friendly; trainers were very mindful of all participants; group chats were awesome…”
  • “I LOVED the breakout groups. I did not think that would have been possible it added a key component to be able to relate with peers.”
  • “I loved that this training was virtual. The use of technology and the ability to divide us into groups virtually was outstanding. I would love a continuation of virtual training even after the current pandemic. I know I have been interested in other training done by your organization, but distance occasionally impacts my ability to attend.
  • “Culture Connections used the virtual training in a way that created connectedness and learning. The training was wonderful.”
