Training for Communities
Paul and Sarah Edwards will work with you or your organization to build an Elm Street Economy – bringing good news, practical information and hands-on solutions in workshops, speeches and presentations either in person or via teleseminars or webinars.
It all begins with someone who is willing to take the initiative – you, community groups, agencies, organizations, professional/trade associations or local educational institutions.
Programs can be tailored to your local needs and interests. Here is a sample of some of the training programs we’ve conducted in communities like Claremont, Calif., Phoenix, Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, Santa Barbara, Calif., and nationwide via the web.
- Finding a Sustainable Livelihood in Your Community (tailored to your community’s assets and needs)
- Overcoming Institutional Barriers to Sustainability: Four Steps to Restoring Local Community Resilience
- Turning Your Business or Practice into a Middle Class Lifeboat
Despite economic ups and downs options and possibilities still beckon. But oh, how they can be disguised by the painful costs of the environmental and economic changes that are challenging many Americans!
In short, we have to adapt, modify and restructure our lives and our livelihoods. There are emerging niches and established trades, businesses or professions needed to be filled. In fact, these times demand all our expertise and experience to rebuild and maintain personal and community resilience.
Our goal is to provide a road map of practical steps for navigating today’s changing economy by turning one’s career, business, private practice or profession into a lifeboat.
Our experience includes speaking at conferences, conventions, trade shows, expos, and in-house programs for over 20 years and being named “Consummate Speakers of the Year in 1996” by Sharing Ideas, the International Newsmagazine for Speakers, Meeting Planners and Agents,.
