Training enquiries and event planning
exa.foundation provides a wide range of services, consultancy and events nationwide which can be designed to meet your needs. It's always best to make an email enquiry (to firstname.lastname@example.org) to see if exa.foundation has the capacity to support your needs, to check availability and to establish what charges there may be if any.
Although exa.foundation operates on a non-profit basis, it is sometimes necessary to charge for certain events and expenses to help offset the costs of free and subsidised events. When there are competing demands for service, preference is always given to education customers of Exa Education and partners.

Equipment and Venue Requirements: By prior
arrangement, exa.foundation can provide equipment for all events,
including computers. This makes choosing a suitable space or venue
easier. All registrations
for events with external visitors are managed by exa.foundation. It is
appreciated when the host organisation can provide refreshments, however
if this proves impossible - alternative arrangements can be made.
Quality: We pride ourselves on the high quality of our events and reputation. Attendees consistently and overwhelmingly provide positive feedback for our events. Copies of evaluation feedback forms can be made available on request. It's possible that if you request something that is not currently available, we will recommend a local provider who can better suit your needs.
