Welcome to a new way of learning with Simply Good Form!

Safe in your space, wherever that may be - it doesn't get more comprehensive than this...

Our team is ready to empower you to launch your new skills, once you're back in your work space, whatever work you do! 

Simply Good Form evolved in 2018. It began as a navigational tool; as a way to connect people who were navigating challenges and needing support around LGBTQ2+ inclusion. A blog emerged and finally in early 2019 the Consultancy formed as a way to formally connect and inform businesses, educators and organizations small and large through our workshops and seminars.

We are a socially-focused business actively giving back to our trans communities, as we recognize this community is one of the most marginalized groups of people that touches all intersections of race, ethnicity, socio-economic and geographical backgrounds.


Professional Development

This Workshop is outlined and easy to follow and it is designed to be a Professional Development credit for service providers, business owners, managers including Human Resource teams.

Each Module is completed in sequence. It's designed to build upon each module and as we offer a certified program, we want to ensure we answer all your questions and give you the tools to easily transfer beyond the screen to the classroom.


Workbook - alternative

Throughout the course there is space to share your comments via our Comment Section and/or various surveys and reflections.

You can also create your own take-away! You'll find a Workbook to download and print if this is the way you like to work.

Or, there is a shorter 'Top of Mind' Worksheet

Download it and save or print before diving into the course. It's a tool to ensure you can easily jot down:

  1. a wave of inspiration;
  2. a question or;
  3. something you'd like clarification about

There will be a place to share these 'Top of Mind' thoughts with us within the course.

But, we recognize it can be disruptive for you to have to pause and write -- or even try to recall a specific question later on. 

If you are using the Workbook, please ensure you snap shot applicable pages with your phone and upload them to the Comments Section for reference before marking the section 'Complete'.
