Tired of fielding complaints about boring classes? Frustrated by your limited training budget? Disappointed that all the resources you’ve poured into learning and development don’t seem to have made a difference in employee performance?

It doesn’t have to be this way! Effective training can be fun and easy – for everyone! We’ve seen it happen – we’ve made it happen – and now we want to share what we’ve learned with you.

During this interactive session, you will:

  • Get hands-on experience practicing the one method that ensures increased employee engagement
  • Discover ways of reducing training time
  • Experience techniques that liven up classroom and online courses
  • Explore low cost ways to enhance training
  • Learn the keys to designing online training that’s effective and interesting

Everyone who attends will receive a guide packed with resources and tips, including a special section on needs assessment and analysis that will help all your courses get off on the right foot.
