EDUCATION

Nelson Mandela, the former President of South Africa, who endured many years of hardships in order to lead his nation once stated “Education is the most powerful weapon that one can use to change the world.”

Education is often a concept that people in the poorest of cities and countries dream to obtain. Education is an asset. It is an advantage so strong, that once you have it, it can be the most powerful tool or weapon that any person has ever used in the history of man-kind to change his or her life.
When the system of education through the medium of institutes and universities was first created, this was the goal that people aspired towards.

Today with education readily available in the industrialized world.  The depth of wisdom is no longer reach through primary or secondary education. Rather, it is often gathered in the post graduate, workshops, professional developments, and seminars that are often organized by ones place of employment or those required for continuing education requirements of one’s professional licensure.

It is this genre of education that is often most valuable for most professionals, because not only can they directly apply it to their work and to enhance the lives of those they come into contact with, but also because it allows their lives to become much more efficient. Dr. Dean and his team of expert consultants provide customized, practical, relatable, engaging presentations.  This way not only do employees and staff of an organization remain engaged and connected, but also become much more willing to participate and growth of your practice.

Why practical education?

Practical education over its theoretical counterpart has been an obvious choice amongst students and professionals. This is applicable to any subject that people wish to study at that moment. For instance, imagine a chemistry lesson is in progress. Students are continuously bombarded with random facts about chemical structures, formula, reactions, theories and so many other details. Now, after an hour or two of theoretical brainstorming, students are sent to a laboratory and asked to experiment on everything that they studied in the last hour. There is a striking difference between the two:

  • It develops a better understanding: Instead of the artificial paper-made structures that they made in the past hour, they get to contradict the humdrum that they experienced. They probably didn’t believe that chlorine was a greenish yellow gas, or hydrogen sulphide smelled of rotten eggs, but when they performed it themselves, it just made so much more sense.
  • Acquiring crucial skills: The joy of creating something is the greatest ever experienced. It makes you feel responsible for what you made, and you begin to take charge. Students learn essential lab skills, like accuracy, patience and concentration, which would be tough to learn otherwise.

It is as a result of these reasons that Dr. Dean strives to make each session he is asked to lead as practical, clinical, or applicable as humanly possible. This way, at the conclusion of each of his training sessions, attendees walk away with a solid understanding of not only the why, but also the how.
