Remarks from some of our 2016 students:
“This was my first NLP class, and I was highly impressed. A new nonprofit professional who recently graduated from college, I often find myself not knowing where to turn to for answers to these complex communications questions I’ve been coming up against. This course really helped guide me by giving me examples of goals to work towards, connections with other professionals in the field, and a better understanding of where I need to take my nonprofit’s communications strategy. This was an absolute pleasure of a course, and I can’t wait to sign up for more.”
“Always consistent and excellent instruction for a price that my small organization can afford. Thank you!”
“Always enjoy these classes. Content is current and presented well by experienced instructors and the class size encourages new friendships. I always leave wanting more.”
“I am looking forward to sharing the information I learned with the other staff members at my organization. I have taken a lot of continuing education classes, although this was a first at NLP, and this by far was the most useful and the one that had the most “real life” applications for me. I hope I am able to take others.”
