It’s just over a month since the launch in Liverpool of our Appreciative Inquiry training cards AI essentials and the response has been great, with international sales from the USA, Norway, Czech Republic, Ireland and Australia, on top of those we’ve sold in the UK. So far, we’ve used them as curriculum resources for AI training with groups of community volunteers and health service professionals.
We’re very pleased to announce that Sue and Chris at bjseminars.com.au are now the Australia and New Zealand AI essential distributors, and you can buy both AI essentials and Food for Thought through them.
US customers can buy Food for Thought through LynnKJones.com, and she’ll be stocking copies of AI essentials very soon too. We’re discussing plans with a distributor in Ireland right now, and are also interested in agents for India and South America, as well as South Africa. Advantages for local agents include reduced shipping and postal costs, and local knowledge.
Mette Jacobsgaard, an organisational and development consultant, and one of the first people in Europe to be trained in AI, said: ‘The AI essentials cards are a wonderful, comprehensive, quick and easy reference to AI. They are helpful reminders for those who have already been trained in AI and I imagine will deepen the curiosity in those who are at the beginning of their journey. They are very high quality, beautiful and nice to handle. Thanks to Appreciating People for developing this great new resource.‘
We’ve also made a short film about the launch at Unit 51, Baltic Creative (a great Liverpool coffee bar!), which you’ll be able to see on the site later this week, and on You Tube.
