Scott Wood

IFI Training

VP Training Solutions 

Linkedin Page

During his 35 years in the training industry, Scott has worked with several well known training companies that have amazing content and good delivery but still failed to "move the needle". He now works with IFI Training because they care about one thing and one thing only - transferring skills business professionals need. I firmly believe training is only successful if it changes behavior permanently. IFI stands behind that promise.

Scott's interests are helping clients win mega-proposals, techniques to further adult learning, technology for virtual presentations, desktop publishing software that is NOT WORD, Rock-hunting, and deals for Cruises or SCUBA locations.

Scott love North Texas SHRM and say, "It's small enough to not get lost in the shuffle and form meaningful relationships with people."

After graduating college and working in Human Resources, he saw firsthand how effective training increased employee retention, employee engagement and productivity and created an environment where people made significant changes to help their businesses grow and achieve the greatest things possible. Helping organizations on an individual and corporate level is what keeps him doing the job that he does now.
