Innovation Is Music to the Ears

Presented by Peter Himmelman

Peter Himmelman is back for an encore! His 2012 chapter meeting was one of ASTD-LA's most successful meetings ever.

Check out this exciting video from the
April 2012 Los Angeles Chapter meeting!

Imagine becoming fearless like Seal Team Six, as inspired as the Beatles, and as synchronized as the New York City Ballet. Picture yourself over-flowing with creativity and putting your best new ideas forward every day. This Big Muse session frees you to feel the power of your own creative process. You learn new ways to be more creative, have greater confidence in your ideas, to develop more fulfilling relationships, and to have a more positive outlook on both life and work.

Workshop: Friday, September 19 ~ 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Facilitating Virtual Collaboration: How to Engage Others in Meetings and Classrooms

Presented by by Cynthia Clay, President/CEO of NetSpeed Learning Solutions

What if your ability to facilitate meetings and training sessions in the virtual arena was so strong that participants were eager to attend your events?

Virtual meeting and web training platforms such as WebEx, Adobe Connect, Microsoft Lync, and Citrix Go to Webinar are in use in most organizations. Unfortunately companies often make the common mistake of assuming that the same techniques that work in a face-to-face class or meeting will easily transfer to the virtual meeting or training space. Not so! With over 50% of organizations relying on dispersed workforces, it is imperative that managers and facilitators understand how to educate, engage, and collaborate online.

Behind every solid webinar or virtual meeting is a great design that capitalizes on the interactivity tools in the web conference platform. Join Cynthia Clay to learn how to leverage six tools (open chat, presenter notes, polling, annotation, emoticons, and shared documents) to create strong collaboration in the virtual classroom or virtual meeting. Learn how to lead a collaborative virtual team. Take away a design template for a successful virtual meeting agenda.
