Given the current outbreak of COVID-19 and the impact the virus is having on our global communities, customers, employees, and families, we would like to take a minute to share our approach for the next couple of weeks.

After having continuous internal discussions about what’s the best way forward we’ve decided that the professional ethical solution is to postpone all our in-person classes and activities planned at least through 04/01.

Private classes (Including and SAI certification classes as well as AgileSparks curriculums) and client workshops/activities will still take place – virtually. While the most efficient and effective method of conveying information is face-to-face conversation, we all need to be pragmatic and creative. In the past, we limited our live virtual training offerings just to organizations that are inherently virtual and distributed themselves. But that has given us some experience we can leverage now.

We will also be running some public classes in a live virtual format. More updates on that later on.

We will be offering all students affected by these changes the choice of either a full refund or a transfer to a class in late spring or beyond.

We are here for any questions about how we’re responding to the COVID19 situation. Ruslan Bershtein our director of BizDev is coordinating the response and is available at or (617)564-0455.
