Most people who attend a conference like TechLearn forget half of what they learned before stepping foot on the flight home. Use it or lose it. That's the nature of the forgetting curve, and most of us just let it happen.
The Masie Center has posted presentations, audio recordings, and some video of the last week's presentations. By hat's off to Heinrich Koenen, the A/V team at the Coronado, and the Masie Center tech staff for putting this material on the web in record time.
I suggest you review the online material -- and get double your money's worth. (Naturally, you should start with Lance's and my Mega session.)
A couple of years from now, all successful organizations will encourage participants to reflect on what they learn at conferences. They'll wake up to the fact that they have been letting valuable content slip through their fingers, never to be recaptured. Today's pioneering efforts, like TechLearn, will be the norm.
Compare the online TechLearn coverage to the artifacts of your last global sales meeting. Ten days later. Are you doing as well as a handful of people at The Masie Center in Saratoga Springs?
