The best instructior [sic] from my 10 year carrier [sic] in XX. Best ever preared [sic] and knew subject very well. – Fortune 100 Participant
On-point and clear communication from verbal, slide decks, and print-outs. Presentation was hotttt
This session was awesome. We got some actionable ideas coming from this and will definitely put the learnings from this session to work!!!
Literally perfect! Easily the best session I’ve had in my career. Info was relatable fun but most importantly actionable. I’m giddy with excitement about what I’ll be able to accomplish with my new skills
Great instructor! knew his topic, engaged us easily (which is not easy for a full day training), a lot of examples that helped ilustrated the topic better.
One of the most thought-provoking presentations was Brad Kolar’s. His perspective on how to present information to people, based on human evolution and how our brains are wired was extremely beneficial and fascinating. This can definitely be applied directly to real-life work situations.
Fantastic workshop and one of the best I have ever been to! You kept our attention and engagement all day and really demonstrated to us that we can really improve how we get through all of the data and what we really need and want from it. – Fortune 100 Executive
I used the 2×2 (and a 3×2!) framework today to quickly decipher which Dish Care items were most at risk for distribution cuts based on what items are growing at our retailer versus the marketplace. As I am transitioning to a new category, this was a very simple way for me to illustrate to my AD where we have a solid story to save distribution and where we may need to do more work/negotiating to save items.
This is probably one of the most relevant trainings I’ve attended and I hope we can cascade this to more people in the organization.
Best training I’ve had in my whole career
