Our purpose is to inspire people to live their biggest dreams

This mix is the rocket-fuel for launching a successful career in leadership, training, and speaking. We champion you so you can inspire others to fulfill their futures and enrich the world.

Certification: Leader in Transformational Training and Speaking

TrainUP Forum starts with the 4-day Intensive course. It is an interactive game-changer with beginners to emerging experts.You will learn powerful principles of personal and professional effectiveness and embody the competencies that notable trainers, workshop facilitators, and speakers use to impact their audiences and cause accelerated achievement.

The TrainUp Forum is a six-month deep-dive practicum where you collaborate with like-minded peers who are serious and intentional about going to an advanced level of training and speaking, polishing their delivery of the key transformational distinctions and lectures, and how to coach participants to meaningful breakthroughs and committed action.

Through scores of distinction-making dialogues and practice sessions, with lessons in mastery, theory and history, participants experience the amazing powers of the human potential to transform. You will also thrive profoundly as you work directly with Dr. Blanchard, selective Master Trainers and Associate Faculty, and Graduate Assistants who generously offer their expertise to coach you through this career-shaping opportunity.

Some of our Forum participants are committed to train for a transformational training company; others are committed to developing their own transformational-based training and/or body of work within their existing professional domains. Our work is integrated with your unique passions and enhanced by your unique voice and talent — all of which gets nurtured and cultivated throughout the program.

Training Above and Beyond

As a Forum member, there will also be opportunity within the Forum for study to evolve to match the participants’ collective and individual interests. You will write a short research paper intended to contribute to other professionals in your field and to serve as a catalyst for you to create or expand your professional platform in the world. 

In addition, you will videotape yourself working with live audiences in between the three TrainUP Forum in-person sessions. You will receive significant feedback, based on ten qualities of master transformation practitioners, and an Advocate to ACT (advise, coach, teach) on your behalf to support you and help you navigate your ongoing development. There will be monthly Mastermind sessions with the whole Forum group and Master trainers to calibrate and assess the group development and course corrections for the ultimate completion of everyone in the program.

Ray Blanchard has impacted my life. Period. I came to him to learn to be a transformational trainer. That came true and I

have been able to travel the world sharing working with folks in many ways. But, becoming a trainer became the least important part of our work. He helped to shape me into a man that can be the husband, father, brother, and friend

that I am. I am eternally grateful for Ray Blanchard and the gift he is to the world.

Ray Blanchard was an extraordinary mentor in my development as a trainer. He was masterful in seeing and nurturing my strengths as well as spotting the areas where I needed lots of support and growth. He challenged me when I needed to be challenged and never hesitated to rigorously hold the line. He taught me to stay grounded in service, and how to keep my heart open. He also showed me the importance of remaining centered even when students were reactive during their own process. Ray is a true master who lets the training be created through the space he provides. He showed how to be spacious, and in that, how to embrace my ego while not letting my ego run the show. He modeled passion, service, commitment and compassion in a way that transformed me and how I saw myself as a trainer. He championed and encouraged me whenever I felt like giving up as I was losing faith in myself, seeing the enormity of the task. He was tough and gentle at the same time,holding the space for the possibility that “I would be a spectacular trainer”. He would say that time and time again. I am very grateful for his mentorship and love. Thanks to his commitment to me as a trainer I have now been able to be in service to tens of thousands of people around the world.

Dr. Ray Blanchard is an artful and meaningful mentor whose TrainUPForum is ‘spot on’ and directs the participants along the pathways of achieving the core competencies required to deliver professional and effective trainings.  Dr. Ray Blanchard was one of my most ‘inspirational’ mentors and his style of delivery and the depth of his knowledge made it possible for the learning to sink in deeply and stay put. The TrainUP Forum is more than a class or workshop; it is a pathway to greatness, with ‘pearls’ of wisdom and understanding that I have been able to apply in every aspect of my life, both professionally and personally.  While presenting trainings and workshops or consulting and coaching, these lessons have stayed with me and enabled me to reach levels of success that surpassed my imagination while I was a ‘trainer in training’.  There are many journeys in life one can choose, make certain the TrainUP Forum is a journey you undertake with great enthusiasm and commitment, and get ready for the benefits; they are many and highly valuable.

He truly cares that trainers be their best, and bring the best of themselves to those they serve. He practices and teaches rigor in the art and skill of training, recognizing that this translates to honoring each participant. He is always learning and always sharing generously, allowing us all to stay and be relevant. These commitments, along with his incomparable depth and breadth of wisdom in the wide field of transformational training, makes working with him a rare and privileged treasure.

I believe the statement, “I feel honored and privileged” is over used in our industry. Having said that, I have known Dr.

Ray Blanchard personally for approximately 15 years and known of him for more than 25 years. I have worked with Ray in the same training room in several occasions. I truly felt HONORED AND PRIVILEGED to be co-training with Ray. His work ethic combined with his knowledge and creativity is an awesome gift that he has shared with thousands of participants. Even above all that an authentic caring and commitment to “make a difference” with the people he interacts with is abundantly clear, which I have found to be a rare asset among many trainers and consultants. Ray and very few other Trainers/Coaches/Consultants remind me of the lyrics of a song from Harry Chapin – “when you sing from the inside, you hope that something shows”. Ray sings from the inside! Dr. Blanchard and I have shared some extensive conversations and based on our conversation, it is clear that Ray is now committed to sharing his knowledge with others. He ha s worked extensively to create a path for others that are interested in continuing to “make a difference”. I highly recommend Dr. Blanchard as a Trainer/Coach/Consultant to learn from.

He has a style that taps into the best in people and he brings a vast background of knowledge and experience.
