If you want to learn how to prepare a fabulous presentation or training session FAST, you don’t want to miss our October event in conjunction with VSP Global and Sacramento Area Human Resources Association (SAHRA)! Join us to create training that SOARS!

Whether you are novice or veteran in instructional design, you will walk away with learning and tips to enhance your toolkit. Choose to participate in an action-packed hour…or a deeper dive in a half day!

Session #1. Create Your Kite: The Frame’s the Thing!
7:45 am-8:45 am
In this workshop, you’ll find more gold nuggets for developing learning than many full-day courses. BRING A TOPIC. You will transform your chosen topic into a results-focused frame for your next class, webinar, or training session.

Session #2. Go Fly a Kite: Create Training Sessions that Soar
9:00 am -12:00 pm

In the half-day workshop, you’ll continue to build the body of your session. Come prepared with a training topic in mind and walk out with a training or webinar session you can use immediately!

As a result of this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Apply the ‘Kite Method’ of Instructional Design
  • Plan to create the “right ‘kite’ for the right people”
  • Create meaningful, engaging learning activities that achieve performance outcomes
  • Demonstrate a minimum of three improved presentation skills
  • Provide and accept feedback on your ‘kite’ design and delivery

Two options to attend depending on your needs:
Limited time/budget? Attend Session #1 - $49 (1 hour)
Want more? Attend Session #1 & #2 - $149 (4 hours)

Both options include tea/coffee and Guila’s book, Instructional Design That Soars: Shaping What You Know into Classes That Inspire.
