Pre-Engagement Questionnaire

The questions below will help Robb to give you the best program/event possible. This stuff isn’t meant to be homework; it’s Robb’s desire to tailor his programs to fit your group. The more specific details are, the better!

Here is a good rule of thumb: if this stuff isn’t obvious to at least 65% or 75% of the group it isn’t appropriate and you can skip the question. In order to be helpful it has to apply to (at least most of) the entire group. (Note: Robb often works with groups where many of these questions don’t apply.If you feel any of these questions don’t fit your group, just skip it. No sweat.)

Warning: All of this info helps Robb to better understand your group. But it is very hard to know what information in advance will make it into the program.

Finally: thanks! Robb is pleased to be on your team, and really appreciate your help. Any questions? Please don’t hesitate to call us at +1 951-234-3351.
