“I have had the pleasure of working with Soda Creek Consulting on a variety of curricula projects. What impresses me about the staff at Soda Creek is their knowledge, skills, and superb ability to get things done in such a way that exceeds client expectations. I work with several organizations that also echo my praises of Soda Creek which truly speaks to the integrity and strong customer satisfaction with their services. I would highly recommend Soda Creek Consulting for a variety of community engagement projects and curricula writing, to name a few. ”

Class participants

When First Choice Community Healthcare revamped our employee training program, we engaged Soda Creek Consulting to help us assess our training needs and develop customized training curriculum that far exceeds the quality and relevance of any “off the shelf” products.  After a highly collaborative curriculum design process, the team at Soda Creek invited me to co-facilitate the workshops for the first few sessions so that I could become comfortable implementing the training curriculums by myself. As a trainer, Cheryl engaged our employees very effectively by relating to their real-life experiences and by demonstrating how their own work lives could be improved by adopting some of her behaviors and attitudes. The audience really embraced the concrete steps they could take after practicing them in fun and safe role-play activities. We were left with a highly-effective set of customized training modules that will serve us for years to come.
