Dale Carnegie believed in the power of self-improvement so much that he started a training company. Since founding the company, his dream has expanded to encompass more than 2,700 trainers stationed in over 85 countries. These trainers have pursued an unwavering mission: to give participants the skills they need to boost job performance and professional effectiveness. Online courses cover such topics as leadership training, sales success, and personal influence and effectiveness. All webinars, courses and materials are based on Dale Carnegie's time-honored approach, outlined in How to Win Friends and Influence People. Dale Carnegie now offers much of its information and many of its classes online.

Just because school is out doesn't mean learning has to end. At Greenhill Day Camp at Buckingham Friends School, the programs make education fun as well.
