What is Host a Workshop?  In response to numerous requests (“How about coming to my town?”), we’ve developed a way to offer our top-rated trainings in your metropolitan area!

Prospective Hosts, continue below.  If you’ve been invited to a Hosted training and want to learn more, Click here.

5 Great Benefits to the Host

The Host attends for free (or may gift this free seat to another)

The Host is any person who initiates a training in their area. If the Host prefers, s/he may gift this seat to another, or spread the savings equally among the group.

It's super simple

The Host has only 1 task. Cream of the Crop Leaders handles all of the fussy details, including registration and payment.

The training is scheduled when and where you want it

We pass travel-related savings to you by offering the training right in your metro area!  And we find training dates that work well for you.

The Best Benefit Ever

For the rest of your life – and wherever you go – you’ll have tools to look and feel confident, powerful and relaxed – anytime, anywhere you go. Power for Everyone. Everyone deserves this.

What’s the 1 Task?

1 Task Only:  Cut-Paste-Send-Forward.

Here’s how it works:  We send you customized training invitations, complete with your name and the workshop dates you’ve proposed.  The invitation says something like, “This workshop can boost career advancement. I’m interested in attending in our area – are you?  I can include 15 others.”  All you do is cut and paste these ready-invitations into emails (to local businesses, faith groups, family, friends) and your social media contacts through LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, etc. When folks say, “Sure, I might be interested” you forward their contact information to us. That’s it.  You’re done.  It’s easy.

There’s never an obligation to you or prospective co-participants.  You can let go of Hosting at any time, and those you’ve invited can opt out at any time, so there’s zero risk in trying!

Then it’s our turn:  Once we receive this information from you, we do our best to corral a workshop into your town. If 15 other people confirm (or fewer if all participants agree), the training is set and you attend for free.

Begin hosting. Remember: there is NO obligation. You can stop at any time.

Host a Training FAQs

What are the duties of the Host?
  • 1 Task Only: Make a list of people who express potential interest in attending a workshop during the dates you’ve proposed. That’s it. Here’s how it works: We’ll send you an invitation-template, complete the workshop dates best for you. All you do is cut and paste this text into emails and social media contacts, like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. When folks say, “Sure, I might be interested”, you forward their contact information to us. That’s it. You’re done.
  • Then it’s our turn: Once we receive your Interest List, we do our best to corral a workshop into your town. If 15 other people confirm (or even fewer if all participants agree to the higher per participant rate), the training is set and you attend for free.    
  • Click here to begin hosting, or just Contact Us. Remember: there is NO Obligation. You can stop at any time.
Any obligation to the Host?

No, none at all. The Host can back out from Hosting the training at any time. However, we hope you stick with it because, if you do, you will feel confident and powerful in so many situations for the rest of your life. If the Host does back out, and there is enough interest, COTC may or may not continue to corral the training.

Any obligation to Others who add their name to the Interest List?

No, none at all. The Interest List simply expresses potential interest.

May I share hosting duties with someone else?

Sure, the more help you have in getting the word out the better, and you’ll be able to draw from the social media contacts of your co-host(s), too! However, you’ll have to work out any financial agreements directly with your co-host(s). In other words, we’ll seat you (the main Host) for free, and require full registration payment from co-hosts. You and your co-hosts can work out any sort of repayment arrangement amongst yourselves; COTC will not be involved with these financial arrangements at any time.

How do I find potentially interested participants?

You’ve got a whole metro area to pull from – yours!
Tips:
1. Cut/paste our invitation template and email it to local businesses, professional chapters, faith groups, and your friends and family members.
2. Cut/paste our invitation template into your social media contacts: LinkedIn, Facebook and more.
3. Share the invitation with your employer, team leaders, your HR department, and your Learning + Development team.
4. Take a few minutes to view our Brainstorming Your Connections guide (under News + Research, then Forms + Fact Sheets); this will give you many “ah-ha’s”
5. There’s nothing like a personal chat over coffee (or the phone) to really garner interest
6. Suggest the purchase of seats as Gifts: perfect for occasions like graduations, birthdays, anniversaries. Grandparents, Aunties/Uncles – everyone wants someone they love to get a boost.
7. Ask us for help. We can search our database for people in your area.

Will Cream of the Crop Leaders help me find participants?

Sure, we’ll try. With your permission, we’ll share your contact information with others who request information about possible upcoming trainings. If you choose this option, you may add these names toward the 15 seats in your workshop.

Cost to participants?
  • Up to 16 people can be seated; the more people who attend, the lower the cost. Have more than 16 in your group? Contact us and we’ll jump these hurdles together.
  • Location: In your metropolitan area (this means zero travel costs for participants)

Pricing:

    • Providing that your group can handle lunch and supply a training room (donated rooms are easy to find; ask us), the pricing is simple: If the max 16 people attend, it’s only $798 USD per person for the entire 2-day transformational training, including video feedback training. Zero additional fees, worldwide. Other Executive Presence Trainings run $5500 per person for a 2-day training, plus your travel fees. Yet, our adult and youth empowerment trainings are Top-Rated.
    • We got the $798 USD per person cost by multiplying the daily rate of $6390 x 2 (2-day workshop), then dividing by the number of people attending (maximum 16). So, you can have any number of participants you’d like, up to 16. For example, if 15 attend, the cost will be $852 USD per person.
    • Most companies will reimburse, even if the cost is a higher due to fewer participants. Share this with your employer.

Host a Workshop is simpler than it sounds. Knowing how to look and feel powerful and confident anywhere, any time is worth it!  And, there is zero risk. No commitment: you can let the whole idea go at any time. No risk giving it a try.

Other Ways to Pay for the Training:
  • Employee Reimbursement: Employers often reimburse for our trainings, because these trainings benefit employees and organizations from all industries. View our Employee Reimbursement.
  • Financial Sponsors: Financial sponsors may contribute the fees for one seat, an entire workshop, or a percentage of a workshop (consider asking 4 local sponsors to each contribute 25%, or 10 local organizations to each contribute 10%). Sponsorship is especially viable if your group has a theme that might appeal to sponsors (women, older people reentering the work force, disadvantaged groups, young entrepreneurs, etc). See our Financial Sponsor page.
  • Crowdsourcing Your Training Fees:
What is the difference between your 3-Day and 2-Day trainings?
  • 3-Day: The 3-Day training allows for more video feedback, additional skill-reinforcing exercises and more solo time per participant.
  • 2-Day Training: The 2-Day training is adequate for most groups of 16. Those who wish for the additional time and exercises noted in the 3-Day trainings are encouraged.
Does COTC guarantee a training if a Host returns a completed Interest List?

We have every desire to actualize each Hosted training!  We do so when enough of the participants commit to the dates and financial arrangements. Therefore, while we can’t guarantee a training, we can usually make a training happen with substantial interest!

How will the people on my Interest List register?

We handle registration and payment.  All the Host does is prepare an Interest List of potential participants.

  • All interested parties will receive notification from us when the workshop is viable including:
    • Proposed workshop dates
    • Price: The estimated per participant price based on the number of participants who have expressed interest. Simple pricing: see FAQ “Cost per participant”.
  • With this information, each then decides whether or not to move forward. Each can say yes or no to a seat. No obligation.
    • If more than 16 people confirm interest for the final dates: We’ll announce a registration opening date and time. The first 15 to make full payment at this time will receive a reserved seat.
    • If less than 16 participants are interested in the final dates: We’ll inform your group of the per participant price (based on the number of participants).  Those interested can complete online registration and payment.
  • Registration: Seats are reserved on a first paid basis.  A registration link will be emailed to all.
    • Please note: Payments should never be submitted to the Host. Also, the Host cannot reserve or promise seats.
Is lunch, parking and the facility included?

Lunch:              

  • Host a Workshop participants arrange lunch at their own expense. Local deli’s will deliver inexpensive and fresh boxed lunches.  Or, you can ask a local vendor to donate lunch.
  • Public workshops (when you come to us; we rarely offer these anymore) offer lunch included in the price.

Parking & Transportation: 

  • A good resource for locating nearby parking and transportation is the “Explore this Area…Search Nearby” function of Google Maps.
  • Please allow adequate time both for parking and walking to the training facility.

Training Facilities (for Hosted workshops)

  • Host a Workshop groups arrange a training facility at their own cost. It’s fairly easy to find a donated training room (companies, community centers, etc.). Contact us for training room specs.
