SATURDAY TRAINING

19 09 2009

We recently began a new Saturday Training in Glendora, CA in the conference room of an executive suite that one of our ETTs leases for his other business. I say this because I don’t believe that we will fit in there much longer. We have a Regional event (featuring Nathan Goldberg YES!) next week, so we’ll shut down for that. Then I think we’ll be able to hold Saturday Training in our current location for maybe two more Saturdays.

76 days left calendarI created a calendar for our group which I believe makes it incredibly clear just how important and fleeting the next 76 days are. I passed it out today and invited everyone to check off the days every night, so they would constantly be reminded of the urgency of going to work.

I also recreated the ACN slides that Tony Cupisz put together. All the information is still the same. It’s just laid out in a much more aesthetically pleasing and impactful way. I’ve been a corporate trainer for years and the overwhelming majority of PowerPoint presentations that I see are absolutely TERRIBLE. Your presentation should enhance your message, not BE the message. If all you do is stand there and READ the slides? No offense, but what the hell are YOU there for.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Seems like there are at least a thousand words on far too many of the slides in the ACN Saturday Training deck. So we’re implementing the new slides at our training. Are they more effective? Time will tell.

75 days left til Anaheim.
