      • 12/17 – Thursday - 3rd Annual Central Florida ATD Holiday Spectacular and Trainer Showdown!
    • The 3rd Annual Central Florida ATD Holiday Spectacular and Trainer Showdown! We need four trainer/coaches/developers/OD Professionals… who want to compete for a prize and glory as the Trainer Showdown champion! Top prize is $100! (And all four contestants win something.) 

      Each contestant will have 12 minutes to show us his or her best stuff. If you’re looking for ideas, here’s what Sacramento ASTD Chapter Members saw in past years at their showdowns – training games, graphics created in real time to support training, improvisational methods for trainers, a singer and motivational speaker straight from Texas (with her pink guitar). In 2010, Allen Fadden won with some unconventional thinking and $2 bill tossing, 2011 OD Elvis (Tom Moore) blew everyone’s minds… What will happen in 2014 in Central Florida? It is up to you! Have fun with it!
