SIDEKICKS TRAINING VIDEOS: It is recommended that you utilize the YouTube videos during your trainings but you will need internet connection to do so. If you are facilitating a training and you know ahead of time that you will not have internet access, we recommend that you embed the specific videos (prior to your training) into the PPT. You may want to download the video files onto a thumb-drive as a back-up and bring that with you to your training as well.
