    Qualities of Great Leaders Leveraging LinkedIn to Maximize Your Personal Brand

    Presented by: Mitch Miles

    The famous cliché; you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression has never been truer than it is today. As the number of mobile phone users in the world is expected to pass the five billion mark later this year, and 89% of Americans use a smartphone, tablet or at least one other mobile device daily; search has become a reflex. We search whenever, wherever and even each other. That’s why it’s critical to know the first impression others see, hear, and experience when they Google you or land on your LinkedIn profile. In this session, LinkedIn Coach, and Strategist; Mitch Miles will empower you to build a memorable first impression that stands out by leveraging LinkedIn. He will guide you on a journey of discovering specific LinkedIn tools and resources created to assist talent development leaders. Please Note: To make the most of this event, we recommend bringing your laptop so you can edit your profile during our time together. If you do not have a LinkedIn profile, we suggest creating one beforehand. However, you do not need to have a LinkedIn account or a laptop to attend this event.

    Best Practices for Implementing Gamification 

    Presented by: Jonathan Peters, PhD and Monica Cornetti

    Problem: Gamification is an important and powerful strategy for influencing and motivating people. Unfortunately, many people think that gamification means adding a game to their learning program or making a video game.

    Because of this confusion, combined with a lack of real-life case studies, most L&D professionals do not understand how to deconstruct games to effectively drive the learning and behavior they want and need.

    Solution: Using case studies from real-life programs from organizations such as Brown University, Amazon.com, Wyndham Properties, and ATB Financial, you will learn how and why Gamification works, in what context it is most effective, and the limits of employee engagement in corporate learning and talent development. Come prepared to engage with the four degrees of implementation, and experience the good, the bad, and the ugly of gamification strategy design.

    5:00 PM - Networking

    The Gamification of Learning: A Certification for Talent Development and HR Professionals 

    Presented by: Monica Cornetti

    Spend a day learning from the #1 rated Gamification Guru Monica Cornetti and become a better, higher-rated, and considerably more effective trainer, teacher, instructional designer, or human resource professional!

    This program is like no conference or workshop you’ve attended. The Sententia Gamification LIVE Certification is a complete immersion experience designed to leave you creatively inspired and technically masterful.

    Be prepared to come and PLAY FULL OUT for the entire day to dramatically improve your learning and development results and significantly increase your credibility and influence and a professional.

    Simply defined, gamification uses game mechanics and rewards for non-game applications in order to increase engagement, transfer knowledge, and create loyalty. Gamification is about motivational design, and is the process of using game mechanics and game thinking in non-gaming contexts to engage users and to solve problems.

    Gamification is founded in the fundamentals of human psychology and behavioral science, and rests on three primary factors: motivation, ability level, and triggers.

    Gamification is not about simply rewarding points and badges, but rather understanding and influencing the human behaviors which companies want to encourage among their employees and customers. Gamification includes a robust set of game mechanics including chance, competition, collaboration, knowledge sharing, badges, points, leaderboards, status, achievement, exploration, teamwork, and so much more.

    Successful completion of the workshop and case study assignment awards participants the Sententia Level 1 Apprentice Certificate and digital badge.  Participants are also awarded HRCI, SHRM, and ATD recertification credit documentation.

    Somatics in Learning

    Presented by:  Nina Harrison 

    Everyone knows that “experiential learning” drives better results than boring classroom lectures. But what about somatic learning?

    “Somatics”, which means “of the body”, is a new concept for many, and this session will shed light on the use of somatic exercises in learning situations. Applicable to everything from instructional design, and instructor led training to coaching, somatic practices provide an opening for deep learning by engaging multiple types of learning in one experience – the body, the mind and emotions.

    If your body can tell you that you are hungry and tired, it can also tell you how to lead better, overcome imposter syndrome, set goals, and unlimited other valuable lesson. Did you know that eating chocolate can help you learn patience? Join us for this interactive session to find out how! (Chocolate included!)
