Workshops

Grasshopper workshops are offered at various times throughout the year or we can come to you! Workshops range from 2 to 4 hours or two days depending on the topic and venue.

Thank you for developing and facilitating an interactive and professional Business Etiquette workshop for our 5th graders. It was wonderful! Your topics were age appropriate and helpful to the students. I love the way you kept the workshop active allowing all students to participate. The students were having fun and learning at the same time! I would recommend this workshop to any organization or school interested in sharpening students’ social savvy.
