Providing Professional Development Skills Training Needed for a Competitive Advantage
BRODY Professional Development has been delivering training programs, executive coaching and conference speaking services to leaders, emerging leaders, managers, new hires, and key opinion leaders since 1983, with the primary focus of sharpening communication skills to boost business performance.

BRODY provides clients with a curriculum of learning within our four core competencies: Presentation Power, Facilitation and Meeting Effectiveness, Writing for Impact and Relationship Management. BRODY offers more than 35 programs to meet a variety of development needs.
Our Learning Burst Series offers companies and individuals another learning option. It’s a great option for 30-60 minute lunch-and-learn meetings … or your team meetings … or even as a pull-through after an on-site training program or webinar.
BRODY’s Learning Burst Series is “training in a box” which can be used for all of these situations. It’s simple, practical, powerful, and affordable … and it really works. There are 12 topics in the series, one per month, with each including:
• A 30-minute archived webinar, which encourages participant discussion and interaction throughout the session.
• A PDF of the webinar’s PowerPoint slides, to use for notes during the webinar and subsequent team conversation.
• A “mini” book from BRODY’s “Your Competitive Advantage” series which supports and gives more detail on each subject … and can be used back on the job.
• A discussion guide which recommends topics for conversation and activities to reinforce the learning, and also helps the leader make the series more effective for group/team learning.
• An introductory webinar featuring Marjorie Brody sharing best practices and “how-tos” so the sessions are more effective.
BRODY’s instructor-led training programs are perfect for existing corporate universities. We can add, replace, or update your current offering. BRODY also offers webinars, taking the training experience across time zones in a virtual environment, complete with polling, and other interactive features to engage your remote audiences.
To be ultimately successful as a professional, consider participating in the BRODY Strategic Continuum, a sequence of BRODY training for curriculum-based clients who are seeking ongoing support and long-term results.
