For several years I have been coaching people on-line to use MindManager more effectively. Some clients have been within 30 miles of Alresford, nr Winchester, Hampshire, England where I am based. Others have been in San Francisco and Sydney! They all benefit from having a session which is specific to them, takes place at a time to suit them (and me. I have not had a session between midnight and 6am yet!) and, involves no lost time and cost travelling to a training venue. I recommend a 45 minute session. This is long enough for you to pick up several tasks, some of which may take you a few days to complete or practice.
“This is a really cost-effective, energy efficient and time-saving way to meet and share material, and I can’t recommend the approach highly enough”
The normal process is to book a free fifteen minute technology testing and briefing session. We could be using phone, Skype, RealVNC, Live Meeting, Team Viewer, NetMeeting depending on the requirements of the session. The briefing is to find out what you want to do in your session or series of sessions. This is so I can be prepared with examples including the ones you send me and think about the structure for your particular requirement.
“It was only today when I had to get a project completed quickly, a project I had no idea how to tackle or even what to do – that I realised the full value of the training.”
During the session I will share my desktop with you and you may be showing me your issues from yours. When the session completes I will provide a map with a summary of the session, links to relevant follow up material and some homework. Hopefully you will come back for further session suitably spaced so we can review progress and I can suggest next steps.
“Sessions are always on time and very concentrated. Andrew has solved most of the problems my work has presented us with, and left me copious notes (in map form) for me to study afterwards.”
Normally I charge £87 plus VAT per 45 minutes including preparation and post session activities. Until the 31st October I will be charging £67 plus VAT.
If you want to suggest some dates and times, send me 3 proposals including the 15 minute briefing via Meeting Wizard to email firstname.lastname@example.org. If I can accept one of your proposed session times I will send an invoice which you can be settled by credit card or electronic bank transfer. Payment has to cleared before the session.
As a trial until 31st October 2010 I will also offer the option of booking a 30 minute unprepared session for £37 plus VAT. I will not do any post session work unless we agree terms for this. Use Meeting Wizard to propose some times.
Notes on VAT: In the UK its 17.5%. If you are resident in the EU and you give me your VAT number I can supply without VAT otherwise its 17.5%. If you are in the Rest of the World the charge is VAT free.
