ProSkills works best when you set aside a specific time each week to work on assignments and review the results.

A typical schedule would see the workshop participants meeting every Wednesday from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m.. The company would provide lunch - sandwiches or sushi. And the first hour would be devoted to reviewing work from the previous week.

At the begriming of the second hour, the Creative Director, or other leader of the workshop, would introduce the next workshop assignment, answer any questions.

The remainder of the second hour is left to workshop participants to get started on the assignment due the following week.
