Our trainers are one of our most valuable resources. Throughout our 30 years of service we have gathered the most experienced and talented selection of trainers and faculty who are committed to the success of every client. The majority of them have local, national, and international experience, and all share the common goal of helping staff, managers, leaders, and organizations become increasingly successful.  Most IOG trainers and consultants live here - work here – dine here – travel from here - do business here - and interact with local government regularly in Southwest Florida.  They understand and are vested in our community, and want to collaborate in building our community’s strengths and resilience.
