Boost your performance at TNC19 with GLAD Skills POP

A message from GÉANT Learning and Development (GLAD)

We are so excited about TNC19! Did you know that GLAD will be hosting drop-in skills sessions during this year’s conference? These sessions are called GLAD Skills POP and are scheduled every day of the TNC19 programme.  Throughout the conference the GLAD team, jointly with Gabriella Paolini, who is the Training and E-learning coordinator for GARR, will be on site and available to help, advise and answer your questions.

Who will benefit from these sessions? All the conference participants. If you are attending TNC19, you are welcome to drop by and talk to us.

What is the objective of these sessions? They have been designed to give first line advice and support to conference participants on effective presentations and meetings facilitation. If you are scheduled to speak at TNC19 and would like to add the ‘Wow!’ factor to your presentation, come and talk to us. Whether you are running a workshop or facilitating a meeting, and want maximum engagement and commitment from your audience, come and talk to us. We will have our big tool box filled with easy-to-use tricks that could help you make a difference right on the spot. We also bring years of personal and professional experience because our job is to make you feel relaxed and prepared for your spotlight moment on the TNC stage.

The Skills POP sessions can be useful for any of your current training or professional development challenges and projects. Come and see us if you would like to explore solutions that meet your training needs, build collaborations or learn about specific training providers. We can help you and would be delighted to share with you our experience and expertise.

What will happen? We will listen to your requirements, we will collaboratively discuss some options and give you the opportunity to choose those that suit you better, then we will apply them to your session and help you practise. We are confident that you will leave the Skills POP prepared to rock that crowd.

Where will you find the Skills POP?

In the Glass Box in the Fuel Lounge. Check out the TNC19 programme for details.
