The event will begin with a 30-minute Member Orientation.  Current, new, and potential members are welcome to attend this brief session to learn more about the Pittsburgh Chapter of ATD and the upcoming programs that will be offered throughout 2017.

The bulk of the event will provide the program:  “Enhance Your Training and Facilitation Skills – Inspire and Empower People to Learn”.

As trainers and facilitators, your goal is to take command of the room, show enthusiasm for your content and keep learners captivated.  To accomplish this, you need to incorporate dynamic facilitation skills, strong body language and keep your attendees on track, on topic and on time.  During this 90-minute session, volunteers will receive personalized coaching to transform their facilitation skills:
