History

InterAction Training was founded by Honey Shelton, so our story starts with her. Honey began her career in banking on the teller line. She worked in a variety of positions but found herself drawn to marketing, sales and business development.

In her role as Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer, Honey found her place in drumming up business and building the brand of the bank. During that time, Honey was given plenty of opportunities to expand her reach and challenge her growth and learning.

Her responsibilities contributed to the growth of the bank while her insights created opportunities for an extraordinary service culture for employees and customers alike. Honey turned out to be the essential link bridging high expectations with limited training support. She created a training plan and was very passionate about developing and presenting it.

Several years later a colleague that had started her own training company nudged Honey to do the same. In 1983 Honey stood at the cradle of InterAction Training.  The company’s purpose has been clear ever since: Create and deliver extraordinary professional development.

Honey and her team at InterAction Training have been privileged to work with over 600 national and international clients. InterAction Training works closely with financial institutions, state banking associations, credit union leagues and a mix of other industries. Our philosophy of delivering excellence ensures our clients want training programs, workshops and webinars from our expert training professionals, time and time again.
