Curriculum Details



Yvette has facilitated training for:


Training and development is one of the most important investments a company, organization, or church can make. It is also one of the most important investments an individual can make for his or her own personal growth. That’s why I am a continuous learner. Helping others to develop new skills is not just what I do for a living but it is how I live. On a personal level, I am always reading books, gaining new certifications, updating current certifications, attending workshops, benchmarking and participating in industry-related associations.


At a Yvette Gavin Consulting training, your team will receive hands-on live presentations that will engage your resources. We also provide real-time feedback and tips. Call today to learn more about how we can support your organization.


Our Approach

Our approach starts with a consultation and moves to a needs assessment that helps in identifying where development is needed and how best to address the need. We deliver in the following ways:

To help our clients bridge that gap, Yvette applies over 25 years of leadership experience gained at companies like Delta, AT&T, Coca-Cola, Cbeyond, Harland, and Cox Communications to lead our clients to success.
