We will train harder and harder.
We will not falter.

Skin in the Game

Delivered by people who’ve been there, an “I Love U Guys” Foundation training is a special blend of emotional heart and tactical takeaways. Our trainers’ stories from inside and behind school crises illustrate the importance of planning and preparing, while our easy-to-learn protocols and methods show you how.

Training, In Person And Online

We work with schools, districts, departments, agencies and organizations of all sizes. And we can work with resource-constrained organizations to help find underwriters.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we developed Remote Delivery for most of our training options. Turns out that Remote Delivery is a popular option for breakouts, professional development, and half day offerings. Pro studios (soon, in every time zone) give you ultimate scheduling flexibility.

This was the most focused, thoughtful, engaging, and ready to implement training that I have attended.
Stephen Owen Professor of Criminal Justice, Radford University

Together-REx (T-REx)

School safety software providers have utilized the Standard Reunification Method in their applications for years. We are piloting a new program with Raptor Technologies, T-REx (yes, we know, but we couldn’t resist). T-REx is a unique opportunity to learn the practical mechanics of the SRM and how it works using mobile and desktop technology.

T-REx follows the same agenda as the 2-day SRM-REx workshop and functional exercises, with the added bonus of seeing how the process works with technology.

School Safety and Violent Event Incident Management (SSAVEIM)

Reunification after a violent event is a unique event. In nearly all other reunification scenarios, the school or district remains the authority. Not so in a violent event. School Safety and Violent Event Incident Management (SSAVEIM) is a 1-day course training school administrators, teachers, and public safety together.

The SSAVEIM course is delivered by our Mission Partner C3 Pathways and the National Center for Integrated Emergency Response (NCIER).

In-Person Delivery... Hold on for a unique, maybe life-changing, learning experience.

We hear it all of the time. Our training is unique. Presentation visuals, media, and cadence based on real "Brain Science" and multi-media learning theory, not death by PowerPoint. Well versed instructors who are "Practitioners" in the field. A combination of "Just the facts", Bloom's Taxonomy, and storytelling, leveraging one of the most powerful learning tools humans have ever developed.

Sure, there are some frank, real-world conversations. And if our audience is all adults, there will be some "Adulting" moments. But don't be surprised if not just a chuckle, but a belly laugh, happen over the course of the presentation.

While we see it in many of our seminars and workshops, our exercises especially foster a unique outcome... Teams. Multi-disciplinary, cross-jurisdictional, institutionally sustainable, teams. It's not an accident. We use proven techniques, not awkward charades, to create an experiencial success in working with folks that may have been strangers that morning.

Remote Delivery... Zoomio or Studio

March of 2020 gave us an opportunity to reimagine our training delivery models. By April of that year we stood up our first Remote Broadcast Studio. Today our broadcast studios feature WireCast Production Software, Blackmagic Design 4K Studio Cameras, Panasonic Lenses, 56K balanced lighting rigs, and ATEM Switchers. And, we offer two remote delivery options with both a Presenter and a Producer live-casting. During every Remote Delivery we make time for a group Q&A and we offer access to recording after the presentation is done.

Enhanced Broadcast Zoom

While this is the closest thing we offer to a "Traditional" Zoom presentation, there are some production quality commitments that enhance the learning experience.

High Definition Studio

"It felt like you were in the room." Achieving broadcast quality takes a commitment. The payout is well worth the cost.

4 Timezones. 5 Studios.

Behind the Scenes with Remote Deliveries

The “I Love U Guys” Foundation has a reputation for high-content, high-value, high-engagement training. Here’s a behind the scenes glance at how we meet that expectation with online delivery.

The Studios

Studios in multiple timezones. Ensuring we have an instructor on hand and "in the zone". It gives you booking flexibility to meet your calendar opportunities.

The Gear

More than talking over a PowerPoint, Foundation remote delivery uses high definition cameras, microphones and software to live stream our training events.

The Production

Our online training leverages our deep understanding of the “brain-science” behind multimedia learning. 45 - 55 minute sessions with a 15 minute break is our standard.

The “Bear”

We’ve all probably had a “Zoomie” moment where all of the dogs in all of the rooms do a check in. Meet Baron. You might see him drop into a session from the Placitas Studio.

Immersive Learning Impact Session

The “I Love U Guys” Foundation Immersive Learning Impact Sessions are experiences that transform thoughts and ideas into action. The morning sets the stage with real world, "skin in the game," accounts. The rest of the day is full-on program delivery, leveraging the "brain science" behind Foundation training.

Delivered by people who’ve been there, our Impact Sessions blend emotional heart with tangible paths forward with stories from inside and behind school crises They illustrate the importance of planning and preparing in a way only those who’ve been through it can.

Anticipating The Unthinkable

Carly Posey tells her story of what happened inside Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. She shares what went wrong and right on that day and the years to follow.

The Black Swan

With nearly 50,000 organizations using Foundation programs, John-Michael Keyes tells the story of how a simple text message, "I love you guys" has transformed crisis response in schools and communities. From the events at Platte Canyon to the core mission, this day is punctuated by Mr. Keyes' workshop delivery.

Note: The Foundation team is jealously guarding Mr. Keyes' calendar. Consequently, there is limited availability to this offering.

Note from JMK: Team: You know I can see this. Do not put me out to pasture yet. Still spritely.

Leadership: Columbine Lessons: The 1999 tragedy at Columbine High School

The tragedy at Columbine redefined the nation. Dr. Frank DeAngelis tells his story from the events to the aftermath.

Arapahoe High Debrief – Law Enforcement

As much as we prepare and train for emergencies, there are always things we don’t expect. In this session, James Englert provides first-hand details of the shooting at Arapahoe High School from the perspective of a school resource officer (SRO) on scene.

Platte Canyon Debrief – Civilian

The tragic events on September 27th 2006 at Platte Canyon High School brought two unlikely people together: A.J. DeAndrea who devised and executed the tactical plan for the hostage rescue, and John-Michael Keyes who lost his daughter, Emily. The riveting point-counterpoint of their actions on that day are only part of the story.

Platte Canyon Debrief – Law Enforcement

This presentation gives a deep dive of the events and lessons learned at Platte Canyon High School from the law enforcement perspective. A.J. DeAndrea devised and executed the tactical plan for the hostage rescue, and John-Michael Keyes lost his daugher, Emily. A SWAT Team lead and a victim's father share their experiences.

Platte Canyon Debrief – Negotiator

This presentation explores the interactions during the Platte Canyon High School events between a negotiator, Stacy Avila, and a 16 year old girl being held hostage. It's a powerful affirmation of a negotiator and a victim's father (John-Michael Keyes) sharing their experiences on that day and beyond.

When the Worst Happens: Interconnected Stories of Response, Recovery & Resilience.

Jordan Murphy and Carly Posey share lessons learned through their stories and experiences of the Aurora Theatre shooting and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, and their unbreakable bond through tragedy.

Create and deliver better presentations despite PowerPoint

The true enemy of a great presentation is the brain of everyone in your audience. How it's wired. How it works. How it explodes. (Figuratively, of course. None of us want actual exploding brains.) Carpe Audience exposes the science behind multimedia learning and reveals how many of today's common practices actually induce cognitive overload.
