Are you ready to take your training skills to an advanced level? This event is for YOU! Whether you are a newer or seasoned trainer, teacher, speaker or coach, this event will add to your confidence, expertise and impact. The tools and know-how you gain will improve your training immediately, and increasingly over time allowing you to focus on bringing your content to life with your learners.

What Will I Learn?

  • Discover how the human brain really learns -- which is very different from traditional assumptions about learning.
  • Explore the most current "cognitive neuroscience" about effective instruction - how the brain takes in, stores, retrieves and uses knowledge.
  • Encounter six powerful learning principles based on the best of brain science
  • How to apply these principles EVERY time you train, teach, or coach others.

During this dynamic, two-day training program, you will also practice using the 4Cs instructional design "map" with the content you teach, regardless of the complexity of the topic, size of the class, or level of learners. The 4Cs is a brain-based, four-step, Accelerated Learning instructional design model used by trainers around the world.
