About

…Teach Train Win

The content in Teach Train Win is designed to encourage and support anyone involved in training or instruction; from the curriculum designer to the “sage on the stage”. Teach Train Win draws on my work-as a Marine and a civilian- as a trainer, classroom instructor, curriculum designer/developer, curriculum project manager & training consultant. The material shares my experiences, victories, failures and lessons learned during 20 years of shaping positive & effective learning environments.
