Hey all,
We need to jump start this group!
It seems that there isn't a lot of discussion posted here as the last person to post a comment was back at the end of March 2009. I know that wasn't that long ago, but there must be a lot more training tips and tricks that people can share...or is there?
I'm a lead in-house trainer in my restaurant as well as a corporate trainer, but I'm always looking for new and interesting ways to 'kick-start' my training when I'm on the road. I thought I could find some tips/tricks, to integrate into my training, from this group but so far I've come up empty handed.
Please, let's not let this group become so complacent that no one will want to join, or even check us out, let's show others what we've got...we are the trainers are we not?

Hello folks... Does anyone here work in the non-commerical segment or University/College setting?
Comment by Chris Tripoli on March 13, 2009 at 3:59pm
This is such a great topic to have a group for. Happy to join in. I am up to my elbows in staff training and management development for my clients most of the time....look forward to learning from and contributing to the group.

Hello everyone.
I'm looking for any information regarding train the trainer. A website would be beneficial or anyone with first hand information would be great too. More to the point, what areas should be covered, what should be the training time span for a group of 5-10, and what should be expected of the new trainers? Again, any info would be appreciated.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Elliott, I am based in Los Angeles... I do corporate training videos for a few of the big chains based here in So Cal. If your organization is looking to have customized videos for your stores, please let me know. I would love to help you create some great resources.

I would love to work with you to take your entire manual and put it to video.

Drop me a line!

Are any of you doing something out of the norm for the holidays? I am trying to think of ways to make them fun for the Team Members and Guests, not just the same old, same.

Hey guys! How is everyone doing? I hope you all have a great Holiday Season.
