Trine University
Rob Peck When the call came into our office for a person who could help freshman college students juggle multiple priorities and life changing experiences we knew just the right person for the task. Reaching students has never been easy and in this day and age it's harder than ever. If you have a teenager at home you know what I'm talking about! IPOD's, cell phones, multimedia devices of all shapes and sizes are taking huge amounts of mind share from our younger generation. How could anyone break through to drive home some key points and to help these kids make it through their demanding freshman year? Take one dedicated speaking professional, mix in years of juggling and entertainment experience, add in liberal amounts of pre-program research and then combine it all into a custom choreographed presentation and presto you have an inspired, motivated audience of freshman college students better prepared to face the challenges ahead of them. " Rob Peck really came through for us! We were impressed with his talent & techniques which delivered a great message to our new students here at Trine." Randy White, Dean of Students

Up Close and Personal
CloudsandCog Remember back in August when I mentioned training and preparing to climb in the White Mountain's northern Presidential area? The trip took an unexpected turn. You see that area of the White Mountains, just north of Mt. Washington has some of the worst weather on record! We carefully monitored the weather and packed emergency gear just in case anything occurred. The day was completely overcast from the valley below. Once we broke through the clouds above tree line on Mt. Washington you could see well over 100 miles in all directions. With full packs we headed north across Mt Clay and Mt Jefferson arriving at our our final destination for the day as the sun set on the back side of Mt Sam Adams at the RMC site known as The Perch. We knew a front was expected late the next day so we set camp and prepared for an early start. The morning broke clear and cold as we headed back up the mountain expecting to summit several more peaks that day and then hike back out to our base camp. As often happens the front moved in quicker than anyone had forecast. With winds exceeding 90 miles per hour we had to make drastic changes to our plans in order to just make it through Thunderstorm Junction and down the nearest trail behind Mt Adams. We all came home safely. Of course the only reason we made it down in one piece was the teamwork, training and preparation we undertook prior to the start of the adventure. Is your team prepared to face the hurricane force winds we are experiencing in the marketplace today? Have you prepared them with the training that can help get them through? Get Ahead Pro can help you and your team. Just give us a call and we will help you summit your own mountains.
