Please join us for our first official dinner meeting of the new year with Bruce Wahlgren!

Real learning takes place when we stop talking and our learners start talking.  When we do this, we make our classes and/or workshops more interesting, engaging and memorable.  

During this highly interactive and dynamic program, you'll discover and apply the concepts that help your attendees learn more quickly and effectively.  The concepts are based on the latest brain research that has uncovered how the human brain really learns.  Based on Sharon Bowman's book, Training from the BACK of the Room.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Discover how your learning style influences the way your present and teach.
  2. Learn six powerful brain-based learning principles that you can apply every time you train, teach or coach others.
  3. Experience activities that you can use to make your workshops and classes more interesting and interactive.
