custom-wall-chart-forest-rangerWay more than ‘pretty pictures’ … working visually is a POWERFUL and STRATEGIC tool for getting the most out of your professional client interactions.

Plus … shhhhh, this is a closely guarded secret … it’s a whole heck of a lot of fun for client and practitioner alike! Who says work has to be boring, it doesn’t!

Recognized, Seasoned Instruction: This field is hot and as such new trainers are attempting to capitalize on demand for instruction often with not-so-hot results. FYI, I’ve been in this field for over 20 years, teaching for 15 with many, many testimonials from very satisfied clients from across the world.  People from as far away as Australia, Korea, Singapore and across  Europe, United States and Canada have traveled to train in-person with me (with the beauty of British Columbia being a draw too). Make the right investment in your professional training, with a seasoned pro, so you aren’t disappointed. I’m extremely honed at teaching this material so you truly understand its important distinctions and can implement immediately upon your return.

Add On Two More Days of Advanced Instruction: FYI, on June 6-7 in the same location I’m hosting an advanced 2-day Magic Marker Retreat (pre-requisite is the Fundamentals course or equivalent experience). Make the most of your travel – add on this advanced course for 5 full days of in-person instruction. Just 2 spots left.

Experience Beautiful British Columbia, Canada:
This is my only in-person public workshop this year. Victoria, British Columbia, Canada is a beautiful little city by the ocean often on people’s bucket list … with gorgeous rugged west coast nature just a short drive away. Hiking, whale watching, wonderful museum, art galleries, spas etc. Expand your toolkit AND experience a wonderful part of the world!

See you in June,
Christina Merkley
