ASSE - September Chapter Meeting
Wednesday, September 10 - 7:00am
2160 W. Charleston Blvd (at the corner of Charleston and Rancho)
Whether speaking to one individual or to a group of students, the safety professional must bring more to the table to compete with apps, videos, and online content. There is still much value in face-to-face training and meetings – but if you haven’t brushed up your skills in the past few days, you run the risk of sounding stale and dated, thus losing credibility with your audience.
The speaker will provide you with strategies you can use to step up your game in the classroom, boardroom, and other professional interactions. You will leave this session with at least 3 new techniques for improving your training sessions and meetings; a plan for leveraging social media to keep you informed up to the minute on safety innovations; and a recharged enthusiasm for the safety profession!
