The Learning Pond

Education and support to increase the capacity of women owned companies

The Learning Pond is a live and interactive, geographically-boundless online group training and fellowship. It specializes in increasing the capacity of women owned companies through the theory and practical application of topics like: learning to work in and on your business simultaneously and successfully, strategic growth and business development, business models and processes, corporate culture and employee ambassadors, DISC behavioral profiles, sales training and pipelines, customer/client services processes and training, and markerting and advtertising.

Once completing the eight-week education/training program, participants will continue onto the fellowship portion of The Learning Pond, where they meet on the same interactive on-line technology to collaborate on a, monthly basis with those from their cohort and of course their trainer/ facilitator. The goal will be to build upon the principals learned during training and use the Fish Tank CRM and small business management tool to gage their business development progress and identify ongoing needs that the group can help with.
