More Than a Class - An Experience

Specific to Your Industry

Before the class begins, Ben contacts you to understand your specific situation. He works to understand how AI is already influencing you, your business, and industry. He then tailors the lessons, case studies, and examples to ensure they are relevant to all participants.

Your instructor, Ben Lichtenwalner, eats, sleeps, and breathes technology and business leadership. That’s why many former participants now consider him a coach, friend, and even partner. He encourages engagement among participants beyond the class and often engages in discussions on emerging trends and topics.

Frequently Asked Questions

Every participant receives:

  • Pre-class interview where they can ask initial questions and have the class tailored to participants.
  • Customized programming, tailored to maximize the relevance to industries and experience levels present in each class.
  • Student guide, which captures key concepts and leaves space for notes while reducing the need to capture everything during the class.
  • Hands-on experience, covering a breadth of AI types (text-based, image-based, video creation, and more).
  • Roadmap template, which participants may begin to complete during the class.
  • Group discussions, where participants interact to share challenges, ideas, and solutions.
  • Certificate of completion, to signify their awareness and accomplishment.
  • Post-class coaching session, to ask any questions encountered since the class.

We have a wide variety of participants. That said, you are the ideal participant if you are a nontechnical business professional who feels confused or concerned about the rapid growth of artificial intelligence. If you seek to quickly understand what all the hype is about, how AI applies to your company and role, and want to be confident when discussing and planning AI’s role in your business, then you definitely want to sign up.

The main class is one day, generally 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM US ET. In addition to the main class, there is an optional advanced interview to help your instructor (Ben) best prepare each class for participants. In addition, there is a 30 day, post-class, one-on-one followup session to answer any questions or challenges encountered following class completion. In addition, Ben enjoys building professional relationships with participants. For this reason, many past students now consider him a partner in their business.

So, overall, the structure is as follows:

  • Pre-Class interview (Optional) – Usually 30 minutes, roughly 10 business days prior to the class
  • Full class – Generally 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM US ET
  • Post-Class coaching (Optional) – Also about 30 minutes, usually about 30 days after the class.

You will be much more confident and comfortable understanding, discussing, planning, and developing AI solutions in your work. A one-day class will not make you a complete expert. However, you will be comfortable and confident using AI tools in your daily activities.

Your instructor, Ben, loves this stuff. He’d teach it for free if his wife and children didn’t like a roof over their head and food in their bellies. He teaches it virtually to maximize access and minimize costs. Plus, he’s been doing it a long time, so he knows how to keep costs down without hurting your experience.

We do everything we can to keep costs down. However, this is not some boring, prerecorded class. Every lesson is taught live. Every class is customized to the participants involved. We believe this ensures maximum engagement, benefit, and growth for participants. In addition, your instructor, Ben, has a wife and children who like a roof over their head and food in their bellies. Should we send you a photo to guilt you into paying for the class?  😆

Ben strives to make every class as interactive as possible. That said, he understands some participants prefer to observe more than participate. While they will need to engage during group activities, those students should not feel uncomfortable.

Yes. This is a cornerstone of the class and how Ben teaches. Theory is minimized. Practice is maximized. Where possible, students will have their own accounts and try out the tools on their own. Where not possible, Ben often pulls up the tools and engages participants for inputs, before displaying results for the group to see.

This field is rapidly evolving. Therefore, each session may include different, specific tools. However, every session includes the following types of tools:

  • Text to text
  • Text to image
  • Text to video
  • Image to video
  • Integration and enablement tools

If there is a specific tool you’d like discussed or included, let Ben know during the pre-class interview.

Our participants are busy professionals who generally find it difficult to get away for even a day. We maximize this time by capturing your specific challenges and opportunities during the pre-class interview. We find courses longer than one day often prohibit many from participating. That said, it is a very busy day.

We believe one full day is the perfect time to ensure participants leave confident and comfortable in the new skill sets, without diving too deep in the technical details.

We price based on availability. Our starting price is $1299. As availability decreases in each session, the price may go as high as $1899.
