The transition to fall has me itching to go back to school. Maybe I’m a nerd, but I really enjoyed most of the educational process: listening to lectures from subject-matter experts, debating and discussing topics with classmates, gaining knowledge and understanding of complex topics, learning new skills, making new friends. Who wouldn’t enjoy that?
As much as I’d love to be a professional student, however, I’m not exactly in the position to go back full-time. If you’re like me and need to scratch that learning-itch but don’t have the time or resources to enroll in a full-time program, consider attending one of our training camps. They’re just two-days long but jam-packed with interesting, relevant material and discussion. And I can personally attest that they’re both valuable and fun. Basically, they’ve got all the best parts of school—experts sharing their wisdom, group discussions, opportunities to network and meet new friends, and so on—minus the parts that none of us miss, like homework and high-stakes exams.
We’ve got a number of communication-related training camps lined up this fall:
- Charlotte, N.C.: Nov. 8-9.
- Austin, Texas: Nov. 12-13.

“The facilitator and content delivery was the best I have experienced in memory. I was totally engaged from start to end of program and beyond. I was able to get to know and learn from all other participants. The biggest factor in my enjoyment was the style and energy of Carl Smith. I will be highly recommending this course to colleagues and friends.”
“Amazing, insightful seminar. Worth the two days. Very interactive. Would recommend to all.”
