MEAPA gets invited to speak at a variety of functions from everything to classroom visits to keynote addresses at conferences. Our dynamic, valuable and practical workshpos are built upon
the foundation that professional development is directly linked to personal growth. Below is a brief list of some of the topics we have presented on since 2005. We customize our workshops
to the needs of our clients. To discuss how MEAPA's workshops can help your organization, please contact us today.
In a November 2011 report The Accenture Skills Gap Study revealed that 55% of U.S. workers reported that they were under pressure to develop additional skills to be successful in current and
future jobs but only 21% said they acquired new skills through company-provided formal training during the previous five years. Since 2005 clients have hired MEAPA to fill this tremendous need of
conducting personal, professional and organizational development training workshops. By training individuals across a wide array of industries and positions to understand that professional
development is directly linked to personal growth, MEAPA fills a much needed gap in the marketplace.
