UNDER-PERFORMING EDUCATION PROGRAMS: SEEKING OUT HIDDEN PAIN POINTS

As education providers, we routinely inherit programs with unclear or undefined outcomes; we operate in an increasingly competitive professional development environment with fewer resources and budget-strapped attendees; and we consistently grapple with unrealistic revenue and attendance targets while forgetting to sunset programs that are past their prime.  

During this session, we'll identify the hidden pain points most likely to result in an under-performing education program.  We'll then leverage an innovative framework for knowledge sharing, known as The Solution Room, to provide each participant with a brief but powerful consulting session on a personalized pain point of their choosing. 

Participants can expect to walk away with a variety of ideas and resources that can be immediately applied to their unique challenges, resulting in a stronger brand, an elevated reputation and more loyal participating. Come prepared to actively participate!
