About The Instructors:

Nicole Fleming first became interested in TBR through her role as Operations Coordinator with The Braintrust Consulting Group. As the Operations Coordinator for Braintrust and as a Facilitator for the Center For Agile Leadership, Nicole has observed hundreds of training classes in a wide variety of formats and venues. Learner interest and engagement always stood out to her when instructors utilized TBR techniques. Her initial interest led her to study under Sharon Bowman and eventually earn her Train the Trainer Certification. After studying and co-training with the best trainers in the world including Sharon Bowman and Brian Rabon, Nicole is taking what she has learned from these experts and applying her own unique perspective and approach to training.

Throughout her entire career, Nicole has always been fascinated by how people learn and absorb information. Initially interested in becoming a teacher, Nicole studied early childhood development in college, but ultimately life led her down a different path. Now through TBR, Nicole is combining two of her passions: teaching and professional development in order to help people grow.

Sharon Bowman turns passive listeners into active learners with her high-energy, hands-on approach to teaching, training, and learning. Her classes and seminars are practical, useful, memorable, and fun. Over 150,000 of her popular books are now in print.

Sharon has been a professional speaker, author, teacher, and trainer for over forty years. She works with people who want to fine-tune their information-giving skills, and businesses and educational institutions that want to offer exceptional in-house staff development programs.

Sharon delivers interactive keynote and conference sessions, and customized train-the-trainer programs.
