What are the times for seminars?
All of our seminars start at 8:30 a.m. with a continental
breakfast available in the meeting room at 8:00 a.m. The seminars will end at
approximately 5:00 p.m., except on the last day which will end closer to 4:30
Where will the seminar be held?
All of the seminars are conducted in a major hotel or
conference center. A block of sleeping rooms is generally booked in the same
hotel at a lower rate. Participants should make their own plans for travel and
lodging. Attendees can take advantage of the lower sleeping room rate available
in the same hotel where the seminar is conducted or make alternate arrangements.
In most cases each hotel is located such that a rental car is not necessary.
From the airport to the hotel, a taxi or shuttle works fine. Once in the area
where the hotel is situated, there is plenty to do within a short walk or a
short cab ride. To obtain hotel information for a particular seminar, please

Can I get your seminars delivered on-site?
All of The Burke Institute seminars are available for
in-company presentation. One or more staff members of The Burke Institute will
conduct the seminar at a time and location most convenient to you. A major
benefit of the in-house program is the freedom to modify the content of the
current seminars to meet the individual company needs. Customization allows the
sponsoring company the flexibility to emphasize the most relevant issues and to
minimize those not as relevant. There is also the very real benefit of having
everyone exposed to the same material at the same time. The in-house seminar
program also provides substantial cost savings in registration fees as well as
participant travel costs. The actual savings are typically 30 - 50% of the cost
of attending regularly scheduled seminars and depend on the number of
participants and the length of the seminars.
