    Although we've had to reschedule the ATD Forte Conference for late August, we continue to work hard to create value for our talent development community. We’ve reached out to our conference presenters to see if they'd be willing to share their experience and expertise via webinar; the response was overwhelming!  

    Each Friday from 12:00pm – 1:00pm, an executive from some of the largest organizations in the world will present relevant content with practical takeaways all talent development professionals can utilize. Note that this content will be related to and different from their ATD Forte presentation. 

    We hope you’ll join us every Friday at noon. If you miss a session, we will be posting them to our ATD Forte YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe so you can easily keep track of the videos we post.

    ATD Eastern Pennsylvania is proud to participate in the ATD Regional Webinar Series. This collaboration of 6 ATD chapters (including EPA, Philadelphia, New York City, Mid NJ, Northern NJ, & Long Island) is bringing together the best of our networks to provide world class presenters and content.  We look forward to sharing these webinars with you throughout 2020!

    Session Description:  

    New product launches often fail because subject matter experts can struggle to simplify product knowledge for salespeople. In this session, you will learn the results of a comprehensive study conducted by the University of Northern Colorado and Grannis Group that asked questions such as:

    How do B-to-B salespeople prefer to learn?

    How should content be structured and delivered?

    What are the best ways to engage salespeople and motivate them to learn?

    What training methods yield the best results?

    What are practical ways to make training “sales friendly?”

    Specifically, the study identifies the most effective training design and delivery methods for HR professionals, product leaders, subject matter experts, and others responsible for training salespeople about new—and existing—offerings. Ultimately, by improving the product training process, salespeople will sell new offerings faster and more efficiently, and the risk of failed product launches will be greatly reduced.

    At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

    *  Speak the language of salespeople; improve their understanding of salespeople

    *  Link communications, training, and product knowledge to the sales process

    *  Make sales training more relevant

    *  Improve engagement with salespeople

    *  Increase revenues

    *  Close the communication gap between HR, Marketing, and Sales

    *  Implement a 12-step product knowledge template

    * What are the biggest process changes between in/out of season 

    * Q&A to address any questions our audience may have!

The team plays their home games at Coca-Cola which opened for the start of the IronPigs' first season in 2008, seats up to 8,100, with a capacity of 10,000, and cost $50.25 million to complete.  In 2016, Forbes listed the IronPigs as the fourth-most valuable Minor League Baseball team with a value of $43 million.

    The IronPigs name is a reference to pig iron, used in the manufacturing of steel, for which the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania is world-renowned.

    Learning Objectives

    At the end of this session, participants will be able to apply this on the job:

    *  Understand evidence as opposed to proof.

    *  Review the types of evidence available to L&D.

    *  Learn how to collect, report and discuss evidence to tell the story of impact.
