BELOW ARE VIRTUAL LEARNING OPTIONS READY TO BE DELIVERED IMMEDIATELY
HELP FOR COMMUNITIES AND ASSOCIATIONS
Jon Schallert is currently offering the following virtual trainings and learning options for communities and associations to help your business owners and members.
LIVE 2-HOUR TOWN HALL FORUM
When Jon conducts a 2-hour Town Hall Forum, your members and business owners submit the questions for Jon to answer. This format is tailored to the unique issues in your association or community, and Jon incorporates those solutions that he’s seen in the successful businesses who are succeeding in growing their sales in this Covid-19 pandemic. Jon’s customized presentation begins the 2-hour session, and concludes with live questions from the attendees. Here are quotes from groups who have had Jon conduct one of these sessions:
“Set against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and our business district slowly reopening, Jon hosted a customized live Town Hall that was attended by over 60 business representatives from our downtown district. Even in this virtual format, Jon was engaging,
personable and spoke directly to challenges facing our specific businesses. Business owner feedback was overwhelmingly positive,
as he provided both high-level strategies for the long-term, as well as accessible tactics that businesses could apply immediately. Personally? My next step was to sign up to attend Jon’s “Train-the-Trainer” class to become a certified facilitator of his Destination Creation Course!”
–James Yearling, Downtown Business Association, Fort Collins, Colorado
“After all the upheaval of the past two months, Jon Schallert’s Live Town Hall was just the boost our small business owners needed:
Relevant information they can put to use today, and guidance on planning for 2020’s fourth quarter. This format is personable
and allows for merchants to present specific questions for discussion.”
Kim Parks, Executive Director and local Main Street program manager, Lebanon, Tennessee

LIVE CUSTOMIZED 90-MINUTE WEBINARS
When Jon conducts a 90-minute customized live webinar, it can either be a single event, or it can follow the 3-hour Virtual Workshop with brand new content. This live webinar would be roughly 45 minutes of customized prepared content followed by 45 minutes of Q&A where participants submitted their questions in a live interactive format. These can be scheduled at different intervals throughout the year and many organizations prefer having Jon conduct them monthly or quarterly, with content changing with each successive webinar.

2-HOUR BLOCKS OF 1-ON-1 CONSULTING TIME
Organizations, communities, associations, and franchises have requested that Jon be available for 1-on-1 consultation with their members who are working to become Destination Businesses. Prior to the Covid-19 crisis, this was often conducted at conferences or during one of Jon’s live events.
Now in our current Covid-19 world, an organization can purchase 2-hour blocks of live 1-on-1 phone or video consultation time with Jon. These consultation blocks can be conducted as a one-time event, weekly, monthly, or quarterly. Your organization would assign the suggested 15 or 20-minute time segments to owners who need the most assistance.

CREATE A CUSTOMIZED LEARNING PROGRAM WITH ACCESS TO DESTINATION UNIVERSITY
Our Destination University app is where we hold our library of proprietary content. When Jon records a video, conducts a virtual workshop or webinar, or interviews an author or business expert, that recording is stored in our Destination University app which allows our content to be played on a recipient’s computer or mobile device. Our Destination University library is also great for business owners who were not available to attend the event live, and a great way for employees to receive the same content if the owner of the business attended the event. If you’d like to learn more about giving your business owners and members access to a customized content library, please click here.
BRING THE DESTINATION CREATION COURSE TO YOUR ASSOCIATION OR COMPANY
If your organization would like to have someone from your group become a Facilitator of the Destination Creation Course, and bring this class back to your members or employees, please visit our Become a Facilitator page on this website.
HELP FOR BUSINESSES
ENROLL IN THE DESTINATION CREATION COURSE
The Destination Creation Course was originally designed to be conducted in a group setting where business owners could meet, network, and learn the material together. That all changed with Covid-19 and the Destination Creation Course is now taught online by our certified Facilitators. You can meet our Facilitators on this website and look at their varied class schedules that should accommodate most business owners.
The Destination Creation Course is an 8-chapter training with a new chapter on “Covid-19 Business Survival Tips”. We currently have Certified Facilitators who are offering this course online with many options in the length of the course from 1-week to 8-weeks, conducted on various days and times to accomodate any business owner’s schedule.
If you would like to become a Facilitator and lead the Destination Creation Course in your community, please visit our Become a Facilitator page on this website.
