ROCK STARS, WIZARDS, AND MAGICIANS
Television Studio Dynamics
Think of Trainevision as you would a television production studio. We scale up during learning show production and we pare down to our lean mean core in between. It’s a fluid dance of ebb and flow; powered by the dedication, loyalty and modular precision of a spectacular team of award-winning individuals we couldn’t do without. This tight band of long-term freelancers, consultants, and partners are who make us who we are today, and who we will become in the years ahead. There is nothing on these web pages that they haven’t pondered, touched, and ultimately improved. From Creative, Instructional Design and Marketing, to HR, Financial and Legal; all the way through Production and Post-production, we would not be here, doing what we’re doing without these amazing individuals. Please rise and recognize the true stars of this show!
