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 You 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.

"An awesome, unique, and valuable training experience! I was totally captivated by the content from this class. It was exciting, interesting, and provided lots of tools to take away and immediately apply at work. Also, the instructor gets a 'job well done!!'" -- K. Mitchell, Sr. Manager & Agile Coach, Gracenote (a Nielsen Company), CA

Who Should Attend?

  • Teachers
  • Trainers
  • Speakers
  • Workshop Presenters
  • Anyone who needs to engage an audience!

AGILE & SCRUM TRAINERS/COACHES: These Accelerated Learning principles go hand-in-hand with team-based Agile and Scrum processes and principles. If you are an Agile coach or Scrum trainer, you will be especially pleased to discover how to combine Agile/Scrum concepts with collaborative learner-engagement.

EMPLOYMENT/CAREER/WORKFORCE/CORPORATE TRAINERS: For more than 15 years, Elisabeth has been using these very approaches to train job seekers, career changers, employees... and the trainers (and workshop presenters) who train them. It works beautifully whether your learners are chronically unemployed and facing a hard journey back, or stellar employees looking to advance their careers. 

SCHOOL TEACHERS: This will add important dynamics to your teaching style -- fun, confidence, dynamism and effectiveness for you and your students!

An inspiring revealing, insightful training. Can't wait to start using it tomorrow. Elisabeth is a rock star! What a way to keep us engaged, making each topic relevant, personal, and fun. Thank you! -- Sandra F. Torchia, Senior IT Manager, VMWare, CA

About the Trainer

Elisabeth Sanders-Park is a trainer from the trenches. She began her career teaching workshops to groups of people who were mandated to attend and had little interest in sitting and learning anything new! Up to the challenge, she naturally employed creative techniques to engage learners, create meaningful interaction, and bring lessons to life for real-world application. Then, more than a decade ago, she began studying and implementing accelerated and brain-based learning approaches to maximize results for her learners. Today, Elisabeth trains trainers across the nation. She is known for delivering inspiring, fun, practical training that produces immediate and lasting results. In the last 15+ years, she has trained more than 25,000 trainers across the U.S., Australia, and Canada to deliver better content in a more powerful way. 

Does she look familiar? … If so, you may know Elisabeth as co-author of the ground breaking, L.A. Times’ Top 10 Book of the Year “No One Is Unemployable,” a founding board member of the Career Thought Leaders think tank, and America’s premier ‘tough career transitions’ expert.
