 My Story

Since the mid-'90s, I have been active with corporate education and training.  I translate technical concepts in a simplified, fun way to empower business professionals with new skills.

You can find me zooming from Wichita, KS, speaking at community events, participating in conferences and supporting my clients virtually around the U.S. and beyond.

The Beginning

As a graduate with a B.S. in Journalism, I found myself writing a newsletter at a manufacturing plant as an HR Generalist.  That morphed into a certification in Interaction Management teaching business skills to the plant supervisors. 

Computers began to appear around offices in the early '90s. My co-workers quickly realized that I could help with their new computers. There I discovered my passion.

This image shows me in about 1994 working for a small mom & pop computer shop.  Whatever they sold and set up, I would learn and teach it.  That included Lotus 123, Word Perfect and finally, we moved from DOS to Windows!

Training a Trainer

I advanced to an international training organization in 1995.  As new software was released, I would learn it and teach it.  This included early versions of Excel, Word and PowerPoint.  I developed a meticulous process when studying new products and educating myself.  I want to know the answers to your questions BEFORE you ask me!

My experience includes a wide range of corporate training with many different software products and versions, as well as five years as an adjunct instructor at the local community college.

Business Training Today

I launched my own LLC in 2017, and I operate under the name Dawn Monroe Training. 

In early 2020, I leased an office with Pen Publishing Interactive, a Microsoft Silver Partner, in Wichita, KS.  We share classroom space in the Pen Learning Center.

My preference is to teach customized content to corporate groups and individuals.  I prefer shorter, micro-learning sessions tailored to your needs rather than following lengthy, technical, step-by-step manuals.  But for those that prefer that traditional training model, I am happy to oblige.

Many of my classes are offered hybrid, which has become the norm, but I have been teaching simultaneously in-person and online for many years.  This is an area where EXPERIENCE counts.
