The DiSalvo Learning Group – Trainingdocs.com
We established The DiSalvo Learning Group after years of collaboration on training programs for a large outsourcing company. While working together on the firm’s largest annual training project, where we led learning efforts for nearly 700 employees in multiple locations, we realized that we share a common approach to learning. By combining our knowledge and ambition, we knew we could expand our range of skills and expertise.
Wanting to share this expertise with leaders of other organizations, we created DLG. Our extensive experience in managing solutions for rapidly expanding teams taught us that effective training solutions require: (1) a disciplined project management approach, (2) a strong personal commitment to achieve superior results, and above all else, (3) good listening.
Listening to your needs is our number one priority. We have successfully designed, developed, and facilitated training programs for companies ranging in size from 100 to 100,000 employees because of our ability to truly determine what our clients want.
Vinnie lends a unique combination of course development, facilitation, and technical savvy to DLG.
