Instinct and experience can take you only so far. And even formal training, hard-won though it may have been, has a shorter and shorter shelf-life. These are the facts of life ever since technology, business conditions, and society itself began to evolve at blinding speed. Today, neither top executives nor factory-floor workers can depend on yesterday’s — or even this morning’s — answers. It takes constant attention to give your customers the service they’ve learned to expect, and to stay ahead of the competition.
That’s why southwest Pennsylvania manufacturers turn to Catalyst Connection’s training courses, workshops, and webinars for fresh approaches to everyday challenges and long-term goals. Led by expert, hands-on staff and instructors, our programs emphasize best practices, case studies, and proven tools. Give our affordable training offerings a look, and raise your chances of success.
You can plan your training in advance by using our training calendar that includes all course titles and dates for our current training year.
