Boot Camps


boot camp

/ˈbo͞ot ˌkamp/ noun. a short, intensive, and rigorous course of training: "a grueling, late-summer boot camp for would-be football players"


My business began nearly 20 years ago as a boot camp for master’s students struggling to finish their theses. I met with students in person, one-on-one; over the course of a few days of focused effort, they turned their unfinished work into a high-quality completed product.

Today, in addition to a range of other services, I still operate boot camps. They still occur over 4 days, and still require significant effort; but the examples, tools, techniques, and instruction I provide have been finely crafted over decades. I now run boot camps for course papers, candidacy work, theses, dissertations, publications, presentations, books, career planning, and business concepts. Graduate students, professionals, executives, and thought leaders alike attend fully online camps customized for their needs.

The common element across the camps is clear direction and structure, powerful questioning, and real-time feedback that enable you to skip the trial and error and simply produce high-quality, substantive work in a very short amount of time.

Openings for our boot camps fill quickly, so be sure to schedule a complimentary consultation to find out if a boot camp is right for you.
