On July 19, I had the privilege of speaking before a group of passionate learning professionals in San Diego, California. The workshop drew more attendees than any previous event and underscores the great interest in practical application of brain science and learning. My hosts were delightful and I learned as much from the folks in my class as I hope they did from me. Most attendees received a discount because they are ATD members. If you’re not a member of ATD at the national and local level, I strongly urge you to look into it and invest in your own development as a learning professional.

Here I am with co-program director, Amy Osback at the corner of Jack Blvd. and Box Way.

Jack-in-the-Box generously donated lunch, snacks and a fabulous training environment.

Every participant received a copy of Brain Matters: How to help anyone learn anything using neuroscience.

Here’s a great example of how taking notes by hand can keep you focused and inspired.
