Show Wrap-Up: Training Matters -- And How!
Dave Carroll wrote a song about it. Dana Gaines Robinson came out of retirement to talk about it. Organizations submit extensive Training Top 125 applications to prove it. And the 1,900-plus Training 2015 Conference & Expo attendees got the message loud and clear: Training Matters!
Enthusiasm for this mantra and passion for training permeated the halls of Atlanta's Georgia World Congress Center February 9-11 as Training 2015 attendees learned best practices, explored new products and services, networked, and donned Training Matters T-shirts for a rousing closing reception sing-along led by singer/songwriter Dave Carroll and master trainer/expert kazoo and ukulele player Jane Bozarth.
In addition to providing a keynote on the power of storytelling, Carroll wrote the Training Matters song—with input from the Training magazine community—and created an exclusive video. Companies are welcome to create their own customized Training Matters video using the lyrics of the chorus and the music from the song.
