Curious about how to make your training stick? Dale Carnegie said in his manual for trainers –“No trainer should talk for more than 10 minutes without getting participation from the listeners.”

Gary will share deep secrets from his mentors. Come join us for this evening of fun and learning. Hear from an expert in the field of training and communication.

The evening will consist of a fair amount of participant participation. Participants will learn from engaging with each other and in small group interactions.

In this engaging program you will learn:

  • How to engage the participants

  • How to make the training memorable

  • How to avoid PowerPoint
