Program and Book Combination Packages
We’ve designed special programs around each of our Blue Pencil Career Success Monographs™. That way, we are able to package our programs so that every program attendee in your organization automatically receives the accompanying monograph. You can hold a book signing, if you like, and customize our monographs for your event. For example, customized Blue Pencil Career Success Monographs™ can bear your logo on the cover, if you wish. You can even write your own one- or two-page foreword to any of our monographs. Customized Blue Pencil Career Success Monographs™, with their accompanying programs, will reinforce your brand and will be high-quality, long-lasting, and surprisingly affordable giveaways you’re your conference or program participants will keep and read and that will make a positive and lasting learning experience. Best of all, we can provide both short and longer programs, work with small and large groups, and offer you our very attractive group pricing. (See links below for more detail about each of our program and book packages.)

Full-Day and Multi-Day Programs
Each of Blue Pencil Institute’s full-day and multi-day programs can be delivered as a one-day program or expanded and/or offered over two or more days, allowing participants more time for experiential, hands-on learning activities and self-reflection exercises. Just let us know your program needs, goals, and constraints we will customize our full-day and multi-day programs to work within your schedule and budget.
