Personalized Workshops/Workshop Á la Carte is the by far the most-common clinic/workshop/seminar contracted. In this option, I customize a presentation fit to the manufacturers request, usually for new gear to be presented in a conference setting. These tend to last anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour and can include things such as a live product tutorial followed by one-on-one demonstrations in the booth. This is for all levels of players as well as interested distribution companies.
