Event on 2014-03-05 09:00:00

Why this specific workshop?

That's easy: This is a unique, simulation and exercise based workshop rather than death by PowerPoint. Most attendees notice these differences from other courses they have taken:

  • No boredom: fewer than 50 PowerPoint slides are used during the two days (and most of those are a picture and a few words!)
  • Learn by doing: there are approximately 20 different exercises and simulations used during the workshop
  • High knowledge retention: Using accelerated learning techniques the workshop material is presented in ways designed to maximize learning AND retention
  • Whys before hows: workshop explores the principles and values which drive success before getting into successful practices – which grants attendees to comprehend the practices at a much deeper level
  • Fun: apiece part of the course is designed to keep attendees engaged and having fun while learning the material

Add all this up and this workshop is one you shouldn't miss.
