Odyssey Design Group will conduct appropriate seminars, workshops and training sessions in conjunction with Design Consultation or as a stand-alone contract. Our goal is to educate individuals involved with the design process to enable greater communication and sharing of ideas between the client group and the design team.

Greater communication translates into more appropriate spaces for children, ultimately positively affecting their lives through their near environment. Some suggested educational topics we can address are listed below. We can address these topics in individual sessions or create a custom program combining topics that fit your specific needs. Additional sessions can be created based on the desires of the client group, so please feel free to suggest other topics you feel are important.
