WHAT HAS LARRY ROBBIN BEEN UP TO LATELY?
I presented my training, THE RADAR APPROACH TO JOB RETENTION, for the Kansas Department of Children and Families. I have been working on improving job retention for over twenty-five years and I have trained over 10,000 people in my model that treats retention as both a pre and post employment service. Contact me here for a description of the training.
Goodwill Industries used my training HOW TO CONDUCT CAREER EXPLORATION WITH THE HARD-TO-EMPLOY!
In my role as the WIOA technical assistance consultant for the city of Oakland, I provided management consulting to Youth Radio to help them start organizing a BUSINESS ADVISORY BOARD. The Youth Employment Partnership used my consulting services to develop a model for BUSINESS ENGAGEMENT. The English Center used my consulting services to IMPROVE CUSTOMER SERVICE with their immigrant and refugee clients. I helped Assets Senior Employment program IMPROVE THEIR PROGRAM DESIGN.

I have been providing CUSTOMIZED MANAGEMENT CONSULTATION sessions with the Weingart Center, CEO, Taller San Jose, Community Housing Partnership, Chrysalis, and Coalition for Responsible Community Development.
