“Oak continually attends to the needs of various businesses and either creates or adjusts training modules on a variety of topics to be self-contained, practical and easy to use. And they stand behind every product with personal service.”

Rey Carr, CEO,
Peer Resources


“I’ve developed an alliance with Oak — a company that has developed a wide assortment of training “modules” that you can download right now. When you download a module you own it forever and have permission to edit it, customize it (logos, etc.) and deliver the module as many times as you like. You receive a Word document, PDF, PowerPoint and comprehensive participant manual and your satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back. The modules are designed for trainers, coaches and consultants looking to increase the range of products and services they can offer their clients. Oak content is also ideal for managers and employees looking to extend their knowledge of organizational, management and employee titles.”

Tom Heck, President,
International Association of Teamwork Facilitators 


“Time is money — we all know that. And as coaches, our billable time is worth a lot of money, but program development time is not. For a once off cost per training pack, you’ve saved coaches countless hours of program development time. Plus, because of the high-quality of your materials, you make us look good!

What you are offering for coaches is remarkable. Thank you! Thanks, also, for letting us customize the programs with our own logos, taglines, etc. Your spirit of generosity is greatly appreciated.

Well done. You’ve put a lot of work into this and I am thrilled to see the result. All the Best.”

“While managing a team of in-house facilitators at a large company, I first discovered Oak in 2004. We purchased several training products from his company and were very pleased with the quality and price. Later, I purchased his entire portfolio of training content and still use them to this day. I must say, I was reluctant at first to do business with someone out of the USA as one is never sure of the integrity of the business. I can say, without reservation, Oak delivers what is promised and has consistently provided excellent customer service. If you’re considering Oak and still a bit iffy about purchasing from oversees. I’ll be glad to share my positive experiences regarding this company.”

“I have been buying Oak materials now for 9 years. They are top products and save you hours of work trying to produce something yourself. Incredibly good value too. 

More importantly though is the personal service. When ever I have emailed or rung they have been extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I have recommended Oak to dozens of people and have been thanked by so many of them for making the recommendation. 

If your a trainer then give Oak a go, you won’t regret it and wonder how you managed without them before.”

Ellen Bothwick,
Canine Events


“As someone who’s been involved in training for more than twenty years, I’ve never known a resource that’s as consistently valuable as Oak.

I’m always amazed at their willingness to provide purchasers of their complete range of presentations regular updates and new training packages at no additional cost. That makes my purchase become more valuable all the time. And their speed in responding to questions is phenomenal.

One of the sessions I often provide is a Training the Trainers workshop. In it, the very first resource I encourage people to purchase is the library of resources from Oak. These packages have made my job infinitely easier, and I recommend them to anyone who’s looking for the highest quality in training materials.”

“All I can add as a satisfied customer who purchased ALL programs in the past is a job well done.”

Anthony A. Carangelo – owner/ceo
The Growth Coach of Central New York 


“My apologies for getting back at such a late date regarding your Problem Solving Course.

My feedback and comments are all positive. I was surprised to see the amount of information given in the participants manual. Thank you! It never fails that I need to add information into the participant manual.

I also was glad to see the increased amount of participant activities. Participants want to be involved more in exploring the skills being transferred – this course provides more activities. I can see how many of the activities provided can be used in group settings to increase participant transfer of knowledge.

Over all, this product is great. It allows for customization toward everyone’s own use while allowing the trainer to maintain the core knowledge of information to be taught in a clear and concise manner.

Thank you and great job.”

“As a trainer I appreciate the trainer background materials so I can study up on the details and background of a course.”

Andrea Chisholm,

“When you have an urgent need to prepare training the best thing to do is order from Oak.

We thank them for the great materials that they have prepared. A little permitted company-specific customization by us was enough to present a virtually perfect training session in our company. After this test we ordered another 10 modules – easily and conveniently. In addition, I received an incredibly good service with a personal touch to the client-specific requirements.”

Sylvia Stoyanova

“I could not be more pleased with the products I purchased and the service that accompanied it. I must admit when I saw the price tag I wondered about the depth of the content … and I must tell you I was 1,000% impressed. We’ve purchased 2 modules thus far and plan to buy others soon. The customer service was outstanding and modules were delivered straight away) I’ve been in the training business a long time … and I can honestly say … this is some of the best material I’ve seen and the price is absolutely outstanding.

Thank you for providing such a valuable service to those of us working front-line training and development!”

“Oak’s educational modules offer a solid framework to structure business education courses. The modules we reviewed provided a clear vision, a coherent structure, and the major points that need to be developed in a management education course. We recommend these modules to instructors looking for a jump start in preparing their future educational offerings and to students wishing to get a good overview of critical business concepts.”

“I have over 30 years of Training and Development experience.  I just finished previewing Oaks newest course entitled Problem Solving.  Having done the research, designed and developed many training programs myself  from the ground up, I can tell you that this program is ready to go! It is as complete and comprehensive as I have ever seen. It allows for customization and tailoring and is flexible enough to fit any business situation.  I have used Oak products in the past and can assure you that you will not find a better product on the market that matches the comprehensive nature, quality and price of this offering, they have thought of everything!   Trust me, save yourself a lot of time, money and energy. you don’t have to re-invent the wheel.”

Thank you, again, for your awesome products.”

“The sample module I obtained motivated me to purchase the entire set of 52! I immediately saw the value in being able to customize the materials to fit my audience, and provide my clients with a choice of format (Powerpoint, Word, PDF). The attachments arrived in a timely fashion and were easy to access. I recommend these products to other coaches, trainers and consultants who want an easy way to save hours of time and have presentations they can customize and call their own.”

Dr. James S. Vuocolo,
Master Certified Business & Personal Coach


“The modules are certainly still proving useful. Every day I think of another use for them, they have come at just the right time, really excellent value for money – the complexity and depth in the materials mean we can mix and max powerpoint presentations to suit our audiences levels and requirements.”

“I had a careful look over your training program. For the record, I’ve been facilitating this course for the last 5 years in a lot of companies – telecomm, banking, oil & gas, FMCG, pharmaceutical, etc. SO, I could match the content of your training with the actual needs and problems raised by the participants.

So, it is a well-structured program, covering the most important aspects of the problem solving process, giving a strong mindset oriented towards creating a positive attitude and a proactive culture within the company.”

Diasfera Ltd


“I would like to take this opportunity to express my learning experience for the course by Oak. Its one of the best courses I have gone through on the mentioned subject. I really enjoyed the way, methodology and the contents of the course. The course contents are enriched with the practical exercises, examples, problem solving models and key definitions. It also puts flash on further reading, materials and books to be consulted for in-depth exposure of the subjected topic. Hence I strongly recommend this course to the professionals of various sectors of the industries because it will enable and upgrade them from ordinary level of skills to breakthrough level of skills. Professionals will not only enhance their knowledge but also save time and money in reaching the effective and efficient solutions of their particular problems in their industry.”

The learner manual was well understood by our small group of evaluators. We also appreciated the focus on the working environment of the learners to enable them to tackle issues at their place of work. The facilitator manual is only a pleasure and is a much understandable guide to keep the facilitator on track and assisting him/her on engaging the  learners in all aspects.”

“The Oak materials have provided us with an enormously useful package that has expanded our capacity to address the needs of leaders and emerging leaders, especially in the field of education, where there is a dearth of training opportunities in the skills and techniques of leadership and management. I can report that I have used them in re-developed format when coaching new and early stage educational leaders as well as at a 2-day symposium for the same levels of leadership. The response from these people has been enthusiastic and grateful for the insights provided.”
