Our Lead Trainer
CCS Ventures, LLC (the organization behind Next Wave Leaders) was founded in 2009 by Chrissy Scivicque, CEO and Lead Trainer. As a certified ATD trainer, Chrissy utilizes best practices established by the Association for Talent Development for all program development and delivery, as well as for pre- and post-program evaluation. We value participant interaction and prioritize real-world application of the information.
The number one word participants use to describe Chrissy is “relatable;” they believe she understands their world and the challenges they face—and they trust that she has solutions to help them improve. She brings humor to the classroom, which helps participants feel at ease and relaxed as they learn. Chrissy is able to connect equally well to millennials, senior executives and all in between.
Because Chrissy is a certified career coach and experienced trainer, she is capable of coaching and training in the same setting. In coaching, she seeks to guide individuals and groups to find their own answers to the challenges they face; in training, she is focused on transmitting knowledge and application recommendations based on best practices. Weaving coaching and training expertise together is a powerful way to help professionals discover new perspectives and identify workable solutions.
We are experienced enough to handle your complex training challenges and yet, small enough to develop a personal relationship with each and every one of our clients. We care about your people and your success. We are responsive and agile in all respects. As a small business, our size helps us keep overhead costs low, and we pass that savings on to our clients. We understand that the training investment can be a heavy burden to the budget, and we hope to reduce that as much as possible to enable our clients to stretch their training dollars further.
