How to Successfully Partner with the Business and Take a Seat at the Table – IPG Mediabrands – Wednesday, May 2, 2018

Are you a learning space leader that feels sidelined? Do you wonder why other departments are successfully partnering with the business but not yours? Do you wonder how you can demonstrate your work and how it contributes to the bottom line? Do you like lonely walks on the beach? If any of those things ring true, come spend the next 60 minutes talking about how you can be front and center taking your seat at the table where the decisions happen, by using data and training metrics. During this session attendees will learn how to:

  • Use Pre-and Post-Survey Data
  • Present Data in a way that the business will understand and get excited about
  • Think about ideas that will showcase you as ‘a business owner’ not just a “department leader”
