GS04 Collaborative Communication: The Secret to Putting Learning into Action

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Friday, April 14

As the Learning Solutions Conference draws to a close, our attention shifts to what’s next. You’ve gained great ideas on how to enhance your learning and performance efforts and are excited to bring these ideas back to your organization. However, great ideas will only get you so far. To truly put what you’ve learned into action, you’ll need buy-in from your team, your stakeholders, and the people you support. Many a great idea has withered on the vine because it wasn’t effectively sold to those that can benefit from it.

In our closing keynote, Tanya Menon will help you discover how to showcase all your great ideas so that others will come along too. You will learn how to frame your ideas, build acceptance for them, and get others to support your ideas. Join us for an interactive closing session that will enable you and your team to put everything you’ve learned at the Learning Solutions Conference into action.
