Austin-based programming allows you to build your team and expose them to the new epicenter of innovation in the United States.
Austin is a place where creativity and technology come together. Ranked by Kiplinger as “best city for the coming decade” and Forbes as “the second most innovative city in the United States,” Austin boasts one of the youngest, best-educated and most technologically savvy workforces in the nation.
All Austin-based classes can be supplemented by an exploration of Austin’s innovative business community and an in-depth investigation of what makes Austin thrive as an innovation magnet.
For clients who request in-depth training but cannot bring participants to Austin, UTGI can provide flexible options for delivering our services. In addition to in-person delivery, we incorporate a distance-learning component through which participants implement what they learn back in their own organization, gain feedback, and plan next steps.
