Regional Summit

A full or half day regional summit focused on presenting membership-building for association staff and boards, or employee-engagement strategies for corporate or government executives. The host organization is responsible for logistics, registration, and promotion, while XYZ U is responsible for preparing, presenting, and facilitating all content.

Train the Trainer

Train the trainer boot camp is for organization who want to ensure they get a long term ROI. This is where generation training meets the bottom line. It is often left up to HR to provide ongoing development for employees and staff; however, XYZ University recommends all organizations have generational stakeholders in each function of the business.


In-depth training sessions customized to meet your organization's needs. Participants learn through a variety of team building exercises and group discussions. Workshops are available in half-day (3-4 hour) sessions or full day (4-6 hour) sessions.

Webinar or Virtual Seminar

Customized and interactive, webinars are available on-demand (recorded for future reference) and/or presented live (30-60 minutes).

About our training programs

Every organization needs the talent of younger generations to survive — but who wants to sit through another tiresome, been-there-done-that training?

Just as XYZ U’s presentations are renowned for blending pop culture with economics and presenting information in an interactive, multi-media format — our training programs are equally legendary.

We always take the edu-tainment route, marrying valuable information and strategies with fun activities like selfie scavenger hunts, trivia, dance parties, and more. No two training sessions are alike — we customize each training based on audience interests and industry.
