    Transform Training 

    Through Gamification! 

    August 25, 2016

    6:00PM - 8:30PM

    Location:  Nova University Orlando 

    Applying the principles of gamification seems to be the perfect way to enhance learning however few organizations are able to devote the time and resources to properly create game-style content. 

    This session will cover in case study format the five steps taken to Conceptualize, Develop, and Deliver a gamified course titled "The Lean Hero’s Journey" to teach lean management concepts. 

    Following the session, you will be able to:

    • Explain why games are so compelling for learning
    • Apply 5 steps to gamify content
    • Create an engaging game using low-cost resources

      Our Presenters: 

      Sardek Love


      Like you, global leadership, training, and management consulting expert Sardèk Love always dreamed of building an internationally sought after training and consulting business.

      With nearly a decade of globetrotting experience equipping thousands of people in over 25 countries to believe, achieve, and succeed, Sardèk used those questions as the springboard for launching and growing a profitable international consulting and training business. Unlike almost all independent trainers and consultants, not only did he find the proven system for business success, Sardèk shows you exactly what do to and when to do it. 

      As one of only eight people in the world authorized to teach the Association for Talent Development (ATD) Master TrainerTM designation course, Sardèk develops and equips the best and brightest in the entire training and consulting industry.

      As a thought-leader, Sardèk’s contributions to the disciplines of education, management, leadership, and training are wide, vast, and ongoing. He is a former President of the Virginia Tech College of Human Sciences Alumni Association. He has the rather rare experience of being elected President of two different ATD chapters. Even rarer, he is a two time and an award winning member of the prestigious ATD National Advisors for Chapters (NAC) as he and his fellow NAC were awarded the 2003 Staff Partnership Award by Tony Bingham, ATD’s CEO. And he currently serves as a member of the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) Graduate Instructional Systems Development Board.


      Geoff Woliner

      Like you, Geoff also spent the majority of his life working for other people. Then, on one fine August afternoon, he said, "Enough! It's time to set my own 80 hour a week schedule!".

      There were many questions about this idea: Will people take a comedian seriously in a corporate setting? Is the idea of stand-up comedy as an effective means of communication too far outside the box? Will, "Stick around for the 9:30 show and try the veal" work for a Fortune 500 executive?

      Geoff used these questions to create the framework of his company, Winning Wit, and, over time, turn it into a cutting-edge, profitable business. Unlike many other communications consultants who try to turn you into them, Geoff uses his experience on stage to help you become a more dynamic you.

      Recognized by Kentucky Bride Magazine, WTOP Radio and several other outlets as a leader in comedic speechwriting and coaching, Geoff has worked with CEO's, law firms, entrepreneurs, private groups and individuals across every industry to help them successfully tell their stories to the world.

      Geoff works with the absolute best and brightest entrepreneurs to help them become the star of the show every time they enter the room. And having worked as the National Chapter Manager for ATD, he has a deep understanding of the L&D landscape and a passion for helping professionals in this industry thrive. Most of all, Geoff operates on one core principle:

      Your success is his success.
