Workshop Topics
Over the past 25 years, Michael Seitchik has designed over 400 different workshops. Listed below is a sample of the workshops he has designed.

Please note that these workshops were taught by a variety of faculty from leading business schools and consulting firms. By picking from a world-wide network of over 150 faculty, Michael is able to select from the best minds available and to offer a complete selection of topics as well as several different approaches to the same topic.

Michael is not bound by one faculty member’s or one consulting firm’s approach to a
topic. As an independent consultant, Michael Seitchik is able to provide the best
minds on a broader array of custom topics than any business school or consulting firm.
