Dr. Elliott B. Jaffa often refers to himself as the "Ralph Nader" of
distance learning. Most organizations, while wanting to put on a distance
learning event, need to become more educated consumers when it comes to
buying distance learning. Most organizations lack the knowledge of what
they really need and don't need, what to pay for services, and the overall
logistics of staging such an event.
Dr. Jaffa is an expert at: producing and directing a distance learning
event; marketing distance learning to turn a profit using both print and
video infomercials; knowing what to buy and what not to buy, thus saving
your organization money to get more bang for your buck; selecting and
training speakers to do distance learning "right;" and almost everything
else you wanted to know about distance learning but were afraid to ask.
Dr. Jaffa consistently receives feedback from viewers who say, "It feels
as if he is actually in the room."
