Hi! I'm David Horsewood, owner and principal speaker/trainer with Fire by Light. I've been at this "speaking and training" thing for a few years, more than a few. What have all those years taught me? Effective training equips people to do things they couldn't do before the training.
How did I get started in this business? I was six years into a four year degree with two years to go. Unsurprisingly, I had little to show for my sporadic academic effort. Working as a waiter at the time, I agreed to attend a six week video training series to get a 50 cent per hour raise. The content wasn't about how to be a better waiter or even specifically related to the restaurant industry. It was about life. It was about my life. The guy on the monitor made me think.
Since that time I've done a few things. Mostly I've continued to learn. My top priority when working with others is providing an environment where people feel like learning and giving their best efforts. Then we start thinking. Yes, I talk some. I also listen. We'll engage with each other. And we'll grow.
The world of professional training has three primary options: in-house training, public seminars and contract trainers. Many organizations have excellent internal training and simply want to freshen things up or expand into new areas. Public seminars, depending on the type, can be prohibitively expensive or little more than lengthy infomercials. Contract trainers are everywhere; it's difficult to know who's good. Fire by Light addresses each of those concerns. We customize training to enhance and expand what you're doing now. We offer cost-effective public seminars with an emphasis on training and growth, not selling. Finally, our training works. It's engaging, challenging and motivating.
Whether your interests are professional or personal, for yourself or a larger group, we can help. Yes, great training is affordable. "What if I only need to train six or eight people?" No problem. Our pricing structure and customized solutions are friendly to almost any need and budget.
