Let's get started
We provide Expert solutions to a wide variety of business challenges, but more often than not, our clients come to us at one of the following stages in their business.
You have a problem
Too many people are quitting. Projects deliveries are late. Your staff said it would get done and it didn’t. Your client broke a contract. You missed your sales target. You’re tired and your spouse is sick of hearing you complain about it. You’re thinking about working somewhere else, as in, anywhere but here.
And… You don’t know who to turn to for the right business advice.
Or…You’re getting all kinds of advice – from your accountant, your lawyer, your business advisor, other executives, your friend, your board – and you don’t know how to sort it out.
You have an opportunity
The funding was approved for the new online training program and now you have to hire a contractor – but you don’t understand the process and you don’t know where to look or who to hire.
Or maybe your latest bid got approved – but you know that your crew isn’t ready because they don’t have the right accreditations or technical training to start the job.
Or perhaps you want to hire that talented engineer, but you know that the office culture is poisonous and that the new person won’t put up with everybody’s high school behaviour.
You need a solution.
Now you need an experienced, outside expert who can help you find a solution quickly.
That’s where we come in.

Expert Training Solutions is led by CEO and Founder, Gordon Sheppard.
Gordon Sheppard is the CEO of Expert Training Solutions. He started the company because he understood that business leaders can’t know everything and that they often need practical help from reliable, outside experts.
He also understood that they often don’t have the time to find the right person – and that they have often chosen the wrong contractor in the past and wasted a lot of time and money.
Gord has 25+ years of experience in consulting, coaching, leadership development, strategic planning, communications, marketing and project management and more.
He also has the ability to ‘see the big picture’ and act as an integrator who can effectively pull together all the moving parts to make your project a success.
Gord also knows when he is out of his lane.
That is why he has built strong relationships with reputable contractors in all the disciplines you require to run your business. From human resources to legal advice, to privacy and media production experts and more, Gord will bring in a reputable expert who can give you the right advice at the right time.
He also believes in making your entire organization stronger.
If you have to make a tough decision about letting go of a staff member who is underperforming, Gord will be there to help you think clearly and weigh out your options so you can make the right decision.
If you don’t understand why you keep making the same mistakes, Gord will work with you to develop practical processes that everybody can easily follow, so that you stop making those mistakes.
From strategy to communications, marketing to honest conversations, Gord will help you to strengthen your organization so that you can serve your customers and community at the highest possible level.
The EXPERT Way
Because we believe that everything we do should be based on a prove process, we developed the EXPERT Way.
First, we spend time learning about your situation. As we understand your needs we also get to know more about you, and we also take the time to introduce ourselves.
As we understand your goals at a deeper level, we’ll also introduce you to our system we call ‘The Expert Way,’ which is a proven approach to help you successfully complete your project.
Why did we build a system?
And why do we know that you can’t skip a step?
Because if you try to tackle a business problem too quickly, and you don’t test the process as you problem-solve, and you don’t have a communication and process improvement plan, and you don’t have the right experts from the right disciplines, and you don’t have the right budget…
