Speaker: Breon Klopp
Organizational learning is trending toward online e-learning and educational design systems are responding by developing learning programs to be more realistic and interactive to capture the attention of learners. What are the hidden costs of simulated learning and why are organizations trying to replace yet replicate the first form of learning...from other people? This presentation / discussion / demonstration makes the case for experiential learning and the tremendous amount of informal and social learning that occurs, often unplanned and unaccounted for in the planning and implementation of learning programs.
Performance Instruction & Training provides an innovative motorsports themed program that is unique in creating fanatical enthusiasm using highly interactive learning experiences to foster long-term commitment, an environment of teamwork, and effective results.
“Think Inside the Box,” the most commonly requested program theme, utilizes a variety of formats for inclusion in keynote speeches, hands-on team building events, and multi-day experiential learning workshops customized to reinforce corporate initiatives and messaging. Calling on his background in collegiate athletics and speaking from the motorsports perspective, Breon and the “Think Inside the Box” program advocate that businesses would realize bottom-line results with less waste and more productivity by planning, preparing, and executing with the precision and quality of a pit crew.
