OCTOBER 6, 2014
Because those who were fortunate to attend the World of Learning Conference, everywhere they looked was a nugget of gold, especially those who used the dynamite technique of e-learning. Show and Tell sales meetings on the floor in an area located on the floor every day, one of my clients had multiple meetings in a day.
