"Our 'Training in Transit' initiative offers a quick introduction to DGC's suite of premium Training programs, and overall is a great way for us to provide value and hospitality on-the-go at industry events."

DGC's team of seasoned trainers will be on the ground to facilitate these one-to-one sessions, which are complimentary and consist of quick tips, role play and best practices for getting stage- and press-ready; from reviewing tips for giving an engaging, live presentation to tackling post-session questions and interviews.
