Marianne Canario has more than 20 years of experience in customizing training in communications skills for local and international companies. She feels strongly that training can’t stand in isolation, but must be transferred to the workplace. As such, Marianne always begins the development process with a needs assessment of participants. In many cases, the needs analysis is done via submission of participant writing samples; other times, interviews with the participant(s) and their manager(s) can help her target the program to the right level. The result is a highly interactive program that is unique to each group of participants, based on actual client work.
Marianne develops programs in the areas of Business/Technical Writing, Spanish, English as a Second Language and Accent Reduction, with training presented in coaching or small-group sessions. She consistently receives outstanding evaluations for her ability to build rapport with participants, create a culture of trust within the classroom, and instill confidence that participants can apply the skills that they learn. Marianne holds an MBA from Baldwin-Wallace University, as well as an undergraduate degree in Spanish from The College of Wooster.
