Administrators, Principals, and Educators
Whether you’re using the chalkboard, the whiteboard, or the discussion board, learning can take place anywhere. Teaching is communication. Teaching is leadership. Teaching changes lives. I specialize in instructional design solutions for traditional, virtual, and online learning platforms. I also provide customized training for instructors in the high school and college setting.

As a doctoral candidate in the final stages of the dissertation process, Collette Edwards, CEO of Forward Excel Training & Design, LLC, has been a God send. She is professional, efficient, patient, and thorough. Specifically, she has been instrumental in structuring the details of the survey design as it pertains to my research project. When questions arise, she promptly addresses the issue. When needed, she has met with me in person. When a challenge appears, she is a great trouble shooter. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend Collette and Forward Excel Training & Design, LLC.

I graduated from grad school recently, and Collette was an integral part in the beginning of my career as an adjunct instructor. She provided information that guided me to the best path for my personal and professional role as a teacher. Once my assignment began, Collette was very patient and provided step-by- step instructions that aided with successful navigation with Canvas (the platform that the institution utilizes). She is a wealth of knowledge and expertise. Her hands-on approach has made this career opportunity less stressful and an overall positive experience! As a new instructor, I have been successful in navigating my course which resulted in a positive impact on my students. Collette's services are highly referred.

As a full-time therapist, board member officer and educator, managing all three professional positions can be demanding. Collette Edwards has been beneficial to my professional growth and success. Collette is professional, resourceful, and thoughtful. Her communication skills are phenomenal when educating or doing modalities like training with staff. When issues or questions arise, she tries to address them both promptly and efficiently. One notable characteristic about Collette is how she sees a challenge as a learning experience and not as a difficult problem with no solution or outcome.

,I began working with Collette at a very transitional moment of my life. While I was in the process of applying to many, many PhD programs, Collette was always supportive and kind while acting as a mentor. She was readily available with advice, guidance, and a helping hand when needed. It was always incredibly important for her to serve as a resource for those who may need her. I never hesitated to reach out if I had a question or a problem, because Collette had the answers I needed and connections to others who could help me if she could not. The definition of professionalism, Collette has been a valuable asset in my professional life, and I cannot recommend her enough.

In working with and knowing Collette Edwards, various adjectives come to mind like dependable, professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, attentive, detailed and just plain ole nice and very caring !
Allow me to elaborate. Dependable. When asked to work on or complete a task, you can count on her to come through without delay. She is the consummate professional. She listens attentively, discussing the facts for complete understanding in an effort to provide the best information and service. She is the consummate detailed oriented individual, taking care to ensure all that is requested is provided as needed in a timely manner. Her knowledge of the product and/or subject matter far exceeds the expectation. You can trust Collette; you can trust that she knows her content and will get the job done!

I recently accepted a teaching assignment, and the organization uses Canvas as its teaching platform. Ms. Edwards gave me a tour of the platform and introduced key features I’d need to successfully update and import course materials. Her knowledge and expertise saved me valuable time and alleviated stress. Ms. Edwards’ best practices allowed me to do what I do best – teach!
I highly recommend her services.
