If you think learner engagement is limited to what you do during a workshop, think again! How do you get learners genuinely excited about attending an upcoming workshop, regardless of the topic? Simple. Connect with them before you see them! During this session, you will experience and create some simple techniques you can easily do to connect with your learners before the workshop happens, using videos and 'lumpy mail.' This session was recorded at the ATD 2019 International Conference & EXPO, May 19 - 22, 2019 in Washington D.C.
