Frequently Asked Questions

What is a virtual Persimmon event like?
We know you’ll love our virtual learning experiences! Just like a physical classroom, you’ll see and speak to your instructor, participate in discussions and small group activities, and follow along in a writable PDF workbook so you can take notes and reference them later. Your instructor will also be available to you between sessions and after the course to answer questions, PLUS you’ll get access to electronic copies of all the documents we recommend you use to keep your projects on track. 
Do you offer custom leadership training?
Yes!  Persimmon realizes not every organization is the same. That is why we will work with you to build custom Leadership Development courses that address your unique needs with our content modules.
What platform do you use for virtual courses?
The Persimmon Group uses Zoom for all learning events, with multiple security protocols in place to ensure a safe and private event. Zoom allows you to participate on the web (without downloading additional software) if desired.
