Event Description

ASTD-Lincoln presents a day of time-tested tips to make YOUR training magical!

Whether you are new to the Workplace Learning and Performance profession or a seasoned veteran, this is a day you won’t want to miss. Our Magical Training Tour includes a morning and afternoon workshop led by an engaging world-traveled training professional who is willing to share proven techniques that are used by the best in the field - and guaranteed to work. You will want to stay for the full day, but half-day registrations are also available, and lunch - including the magical lunch session - is included either way.

The Morning Workshop: Just Because You Said It Doesn’t Mean They Get It or Got It

Ever want to go behind the curtain at a magic show and see how the tricks are done? Here is your chance. Learn from a time-tested magician (33+ years as a national and international corporate trainer) sharing proven techniques that are guaranteed to work. You will be given 50+ tips and tricks that will help you ensure that "they get it" and you will know "they got it" because you know the secrets. A "MUST" take session for any trainer who wonders, "How do they do that?"

Workshop Lunch Session: 5 Magic Tricks to Incorporate Into Your Training

You may not pull a rabbit out of your hat, but you will learn 5 fun magic tricks that can be used as openers, closers, or energizers to make your next training session more engaging. You will go home with the props to pull off your trick and have your participants saying, "Hey, how'd you do that?" We are even guessing you will want to do the trick for your friends and family, just because you can.

The Afternoon Workshop: Seeing (and Participating) is Believing

This hands-on, highly interactive session allows you to experience best-of-the-best techniques, and you will be prepared to take them with you to make your next training event more successful and participative. Learn three of the best:
• Openers
• Closers
• Energizers
• Reviews

These are time-tested techniques gleaned from 33+ years of actually doing them with all kinds of participants, and they are guaranteed to work - a magical treat your participants will remember long after you are done training. What more can you ask for than 100% retention and comments like, "Now that was a great training session!” or, “Finally something I can use!"

This workshop will be held Thursday, October 17, 2013, from 7:45 a.m. - 4:15 p.m. at Southeast Community College Continuing Education Center, 301 S. 68th St. Pl., Lincoln, Nebraska.

Cost for the workshop ranges from $60 to $150, depending on workshop sessions selected. Registration deadline is Friday, October 11.
