“Avatar has been an enormous help in assisting the entities to standardize and implement high level processes and practices in the many facets of operating an efficient company. These include recruitment, selection and hiring, training of every kind, and management development, etc. With your help, our losses were $15 million below budget, on an expected basis.

We were so pleased with your work we introduced Avatar to the other members of our group. They too have fully utilized and benefited from your assistance in all the same areas.

I believe Avatar’s greatest strength is working with large organizations that require high.”

Next, they produced professional education and training materials, using a blended approach, to help our people master new technologies and implement new business processes. This large-scale project was at the forefront of our business plan and was under the constant scrutiny from our executive team, shareholders and Wall Street analysts. Failure had never been an option and with Avatar’s help this project was an incredible success.”

“I highly recommend Avatar as a partner in developing and implementing any major change initiative. Avatar created professional, high-quality tools focused on defined and measurable learning objectives, serving as our one-stop partner. We chose Avatar because of their unique, professional capabilities, and also because we realized that achieving a transformation in customer service was an on-going organizational change initiative, not an event. We required a customized approach to learning rather than an off-the-shelf program in order to achieve our intended outcomes.”

Karl BarhamSr. Manager of Marketing - Customer Solution Processeshttps://

We understood that the removal of unsafe behaviors by every driver, and throughout our operations, was fundamental to our business objectives.

Wayne NishimuraDirector, Insurance Serviceshttps://

“I highly recommend Avatar and to any organization pursuing improved performance results. Their unique blend of industrial-organizational psychology, instructional design, and media production expertise position them to create solutions that are outcome-based and focused on your key issues in your diverse environments. Avatar’s customized approach was integral to achieving the success we experience today, which includes much better staffing levels, regular response time compliance, and much good press!”

Stacy RabornDirector - Human Resourceshttps://

“Until now, safe driver training was not interesting, entertaining or exciting. Times have changed and now the AVATAR program, when facilitated by one of our own safety analysts/instructors, provides an atmosphere of learning and laughter that helps those in attendance better retain the information. This program provides high-quality, behavior-based professional driver education and training materials that engage drivers on the proper defensive driving procedures. One of my favorite modules is the Triple LC (LLLC) -Look Ahead, Look Around, Leave Room and Communicate. Now say that out loud to yourself three times, then repeat each time you get into your vehicle. This will help you remember and apply these safe principles behind the wheel.”
