"It isn't professional development if nobody develops," - Dave Childers
Simon Sinek didn't just do a TED Talk, he started a fire that eventually led to Level 33 Consulting. Well, not a literal fire. One of those figurative fires. What do you call that...hyperbole? Simile? Metaphor? I should probably Google that, but I digress.
I have been in education for most of my life. Since before I was 5 years old, I have been either attending or working in a school - and for many of those years I have done both. I have been the student, the teacher, the professor, the facilitator, and the attendee. I believe in education. I believe in the power of education to transform and transcend. But...I also believe we can do more.
So far the opportunities have been amazing. I've worked as close to home as 15 minutes, and as far away as six time zones. I have met the most incredible people, and received some of the most incredible feedback and reaction to the work that I so love doing.
I'm happiest when I'm working and making an impact. I also love to bring along super talented and awesome friends, so that you can grow the scope and impact on your organization. That said, I would love to customize something that will start a fire in your organization. But not a literal one. A metaphorical one. Yes...I looked it up.
Level 33 is more than a person. It is a network of like-minded professional developers that are committed to providing transformative experiences to clients, attendees, and all stakeholders. But somebody has to have the pleasure of coordinating all of those moving pieces, and I am that somebody.
We do professional development. Only better. Better because it isn't cookie cutter and you don't select it from some menu that Ben in accounting determined made the most business sense. Better because we work with you to design exactly what you want, and then put together the individual or team to make it really happen. Better because you deal directly with decision makers at all times. Better because we aren't happy unless you are excited. Better because we don't have a bloated payroll that drives up your cost. Better because we don't have to answer to a board or anybody else that might dilute the quality of our product.
Better because this is our passion, as well as our work.
We do large events. We do medium events. We do small events. We do conferences, workshops, training, keynote speaking, consulting - we have a lot of different ways that we can help you. Here are some areas where we have resident expertise...or at least the ability to locate it and hire it:
• Google Apps for Education (GAFE)
• Leadership Development
• Future Ready Learning
• Digital Citizenship
• Educational Technology Integration
• STEM and STEAM
• ELD Strategies
• School Reform
• College and Career Readiness
• Pretty much whatever (sorry for the technical jargon)
