Elevate Training Benefits


Testimonials from the attendees in 2020

"I would like to express my appreciation for all the efforts of your team on the Elevate training. I really have enjoyed it very much. I successfully negotiated with my new employer for a higher compensation using the tips that were provided in the Negotiation training. Thank you again!"

"All of the sessions have been great! I've learned so much to help me not only be a better leader for WTM and GDG, but in my work and in my daily life. I'm a lifelong learner and always am looking for something to learn and that next step to take. Thank you for this opportunity to grow!"


"Using the learnings from the Elevate Training, I was able to apply it when applying for jobs and I was hired as a full time software engineer. Thank you again for all the support during the pandemic that led me to achieve my dream! All of the speakers went above and beyond to share their knowledge with all of us and they deserve our appreciation. I can't thank you enough!"   

"After it started I not only learned a lot, but it encouraged me to improve in other areas also. These trainings are certainly going to make me a better GDG organizer. The Giving and Receiving Feedback one was helpful the same day, during the session! My boss had given a piece of feedback and I then used the training right away."
