The in-person, live Survey Design Workshop is a two-day event followed by the one-day Survey Data Analysis Workshop.
For those who only can only spare one day, the Questionnaire Design Workshop is the first day of the Survey Design Workshop covering the essentials of questionnaire design.
While most people take the Survey Design and Data Analysis workshops together, they can be taken at different times.
Class Times — live, in-person classes
The Survey Design class day typically runs from 8:30 am to 5 pm each day. For the Survey Data Analysis day, we finish by 4 pm since it’s get-away day for most (including us). Sometimes we work through the normal lunch hour on the last day and finish earlier, having a late — and more relaxed — lunch.
Class Times — virtual, remote-delivery classes
Our virtual classes are delivered using Zoom or the equivalent. We structure these as 5, 4-hour sessions, which gives roughly the equivalent instructional time as 3 in-person days. Our current model is to run the 5 classes over a week during the afternoon Eastern Time in the United States, but that may change to accommodate the time of international attendees.
Survey Design Workshop registration includes:
- Two days of curriculum — approximately 14 hours for our virtual classes
- Workbook materials
- A survey project plan with comprehensive task list and time estimates
- Survey response rate calculator to determine the number of responses needed for different levels of statistical confidence
- Lunch and refreshments
- An in-class review of a survey of your choosing
- A post-class consultation with Dr. Fred
The one-day (7.5 hours) Questionnaire Design Workshop does not include the in-class survey review or post-class consultation.
Survey Data Analysis Workshop registration adds:
- One day of curriculum on data analysis — approximately 6 hours for our virtual classes
- Excel template with the formulas to generate the basic statistics for your interval rating survey questions, along with histograms. The workbook has separate spreadsheets for different scale lengths. You’ll need to insert the survey data and set up the cell ranges.
- Excel template for Chi-square analysis and for performing t-test for percentages (also known as A/B testing)
Survey Workshop Pricing — Great Brook’s Public Classes
Note that we use the same pricing for our virtual, remote-delivery classes as for our live, in-person classes. Though, the timing of the classes is different as noted below.
- 1-day in-person workshop — the first day of the Survey Design Workshop. (7 hours for our virtual classes)
- 2-day in-person workshop. (Roughly 14 hours of instructional time for our virtual classes)
- 1 day in-person workshop. (Roughly 6 hours for our virtual classes)
- Combined price for both the Survey Design and Survey Data Analysis Workshops$17953 days total, a 10% discount
- International ClassesPlease note that the pricing above is for classes produced and managed by Great Brook in the United States. We do deliver our classes internationally working through local business partners. These partners produce those classes, handle registrations and payment, and set pricing for those events.
- Private ClassesWe can conduct Private Workshops at your organization’s office. We use a different pricing structure for those. Please contact us for details.
Early Payment Discount
Complete payment, at least 21 days prior to the workshop and receive a $50 discount for each day of in-person workshop that you purchase — or the equivalent for our virtual classes. That’s $150 off our 3-day in-person workshop series!
“Complete payment” means your organization’s check or valid credit card information has been received by Great Brook. Providing a purchase order (PO) or equivalent does not constitute a “completed payment.” If your organization is one that only pays after services are delivered, your registration will be subject to a $50 administrative fee.
Colleague Referral / Multiple Attendee Discount
Perhaps a colleague in your company has attended one of our two- or three-day workshops (raving about it of course!), and you’d like to attend as well now that your survey program is in full swing. Get a referral from that colleague, and Great Brook will extend a discount as described below. The colleague discount also applies for multiple colleagues concurrently attending one of our workshops.
- The second person from the organization receives $200 off the regular price.
- The third person receives $300 off the regular price.
- The fourth person (and beyond) receives $400 off the regular price.
Our registration form has a place to identify your referring colleague or if you have colleagues concurrently attending. Of course you can contact us directly to share the information with us.
With 5 or more people, consider having a Private Workshop delivered at your site. A private workshop may be more cost effective, and it allows for in-depth discussions about your survey program not possible in a public class. Contact us to discuss.
The above discounts apply to our 3-day Survey Design & Data Analysis Workshop Series. If the new registration is for fewer than 3 days of workshop attendance, we will prorate the discount.
Return Attendance Discount
Some people who have attended our workshops contact us later to say that their survey project got put on hold and now they need a refresher. Previous attendees of one of our workshops can retake the class with a $500 discount off the regular price. Please contact us directly to make these arrangements.
This discount apply to our 3 day Survey Design & Data Analysis workshop series. If the new registration is for fewer than 3 days of workshop attendance, we will prorate the discount.
Survey Mentor & Audit Discounts
For customers of our Survey Mentor, Survey Audit, and Customer Feedback Audit products, we offer discounts for our Survey Workshops. Please see those pages for details. Attendees also can purchase the Customer Support Services Question Bank for a 30% discount.
What if you have to cancel? If you cancel your registration with at least 14-days’ notice, your registration fee will be refunded in full. Cancellations with 7 to 14 days’ notice will be subject to a cancellation charge of up to $50 per day of workshop for which you were registered. Cancellations with 7 or fewer days’ notice will be subject to a cancellation charge of up to $100 per day of workshop for which you were registered. (The charge would cover the cost of meals to which we’ve committed at the meeting venue and the cost of processing refunds, particularly on credit cards. We’re just covering our costs incurred. )
Can I transfer my registration? You can transfer your registration to a colleague or to a later workshop delivery. A transfer would likely avoid all the cancellation charges if done with 7 days’ notice.
What if Great Brook has to cancel? If we should have to cancel the workshop, we will give registrants at least 14-days’ notice. Under no circumstances will Great Brook be responsible for travel expenses or other expenses incurred by registrants.
