    QUESTION: Why don’t business leaders and stakeholders know how much value training can bring to the company’s bottom line?

    ANSWER: We never tell them!

    The only way training professionals will ever truly convince executive stakeholders and clients that their work is critical to the business bottom line is by measuring and reporting quantitative training results. Does it improve employee performance? Does it increase revenue? Does it decrease costs? Does it make an organization healthier and more efficient? Was training worth it? Right now, 95% of organizations only know their training costs. Very few know their training benefits. Would you be happy investing time and money into something that didn’t show any benefits?

    This session will help you create your “story of impact” and show robust results to your business partners. It includes:

    • How to measure a program simply and concisely from Level 1 (did they like it?) to Level 6 (how to maximize the ROI)
    • How to report results in a way your stakeholders will understand and get excited about
    • A real case study that won Brandon Hall Gold for Best Advance in Measuring the Impact of Leadership Training.

    You’ll finally be able to show your tangible benefits instead of just your costs. To put it in measurement terms - this one-hour investment will allow you to show your true value for many years to come. How’s that for an ROI?

    Event Description

    Even though Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the most ubiquitous software packages in the training world, many learning professionals merely scratch the surface of its capabilities. In this fast-paced session, you’ll uncover some of the best features for customizing the look of slides, engaging your audience, and saving you time.

    Our facilitator will show us design strategies to move from flying bullet points (which were the height of fashion in 1997!) to instructional animations. In this session, you’ll get into the nuts and bolts of PowerPoint and learn how to make some of those designs come to life. Whether you present in the classroom, convert PowerPoint slides to eLearning, or use PowerPoint for graphics to put in another authoring tool, this session will help you take your designs to the next level. You’ll learn to create graphics, animations, presentations, and courses that people won’t believe you did in PowerPoint. Plus, you’ll learn little-known shortcuts that will save you time in getting these great effects.

    In this session, you will learn:

    • How to create custom graphics quickly in PowerPoint
    • How to create engaging instructional animations with PowerPoint
    • Time-saving PowerPoint techniques
    • How to customize the PowerPoint environment to your needs
