Beyond the Data

Presented By: Todd McDonald, President, ATW Training & Consulting

About the Program:

Central Iowa ASTD and ATW Training & Consulting recently collaborated to conduct the 7th Annual Iowa Training Survey.  Results have been posted for CI ASTD members at which you can access here or by visiting the ATW Training & Consulting website.   But what do they mean to you and how can you use them as you make plans for 2014.

Join us in this session where Todd McDonald, President of ATW Training will overview the results and facilitate discussion groups on key issues that trainers in Central Iowa will be facing in 2014.  Come ready to discuss your issues and share best practices.

Pre-Work:  Download and review the survey results so session time can be used for discussion.
