I had the opportunity to thoroughly review the training content and I am extremely pleased with the structure, training material and learning objectives. The quality of the content is Excellent!
Oak Innovation's product are extremely well designed and contain additional information, reading materials, and resources that add great value to their already valuable products. The staff is helpful, knowledgeable, professional, engaging, and very responsive. These courses will provide a solid foundation for your training needs.
I purchased the full offering of training programs from Oak Innovation a few years ago. I still refer back to the trainings after all these years. Their trainings are professional, organized, and full of pertinent information.
The training materials are comprehensive, professional, to the point and great value. Together with handbooks are a great resource which saves so much time as a training provider. I have been using Oak for nearly 20 years. Thanks to the team at Oak Innovation
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. Jeffrey L. Buller, Senior Partner at ATLAS Leadership Training
“During the early days of HRD Gateway, a 40,000-member international NGO dedicated to excellence in HRD/HRM, I got to know Des Fitzgerald (Oak Innovation) and his courseware. I become one of his early customers. I had clients in Asia who wanted training in certain areas. Instead of searching through the net for material, I logged onto his site, found what I wanted, bought his programs, and customized them to suit my clients requirements. The process saved me much time. Later, I bought the Oak full set of courses. Over the years, I saw Oak grow from a small operation to what it is today. That takes dedication and focus. Because they allowed me to download updates and new versions of the courseware, I found I did not have to go to another provider for my raw material." GK Lim President, HRD Gateway International
WOW!!! An extremely thorough program. Covered the subject from beginning to end.
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."
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.

The entire training is nice looking, professionally prepared and very participant friendly. You do an outstanding job of creating training modules that are practical and easily adapted to most training sessions." John Paul, Partner Association Works
