After 6 months of labor and love, today we formally announce the new version of our website. Here are the four things we’re excited about:
Last December Turpin Cares, Turpin’s philanthropic project that supports the homeless, partnered with our local Starbucks to collect pantry items for people in need.
This year we’re doing it again.
Last year we collected over 700 pantry items. This year we’re collecting hygiene items as well, and are targeting at least a 50% increase in donations.
Our local newspaper, The Beverly Review, wrote about our efforts. Check out full the article here.

Some trainers welcome unplanned, spontaneous interaction with learners. Others prefer a more controlled Q&A session at the end of each training module. No matter what your preferences are, you need to let the conversation go far enough to take advantage of the learner’s insight or concern without going down the rabbit hole of inefficient, off-topic rambling.
This post is the seventh in a series of excerpts from “Effective SMEs: A Trainer’s Guide for Helping Subject Matter Experts Facilitate Learning.” In this excerpt Dale Ludwig (Turpin Communication’s Founder) and Greg Owen-Boger (Turpin’s VP) discuss the importance of designing learning to play to the SME’s strengths.
In our new book, Effective SMEs: A Trainer’s Guide for Helping Subject Matter Experts Facilitate Learning, Dale Ludwig and I encourage trainers (and subject matter experts-turned-trainers) to conduct a dry run before they deliver their training for the first time.
