• As mentioned in a recent post, I presented at an L&D conference for the very first time two years ago. While I had applied to do so several times as President of Snap Synapse LLC, it was not until I had YouTube/Google in the client list that anyone said "yes". Funny thing about that ;) Since then I've been on a roll, presenting dozens of sessions, workshops, and webinars for The eLearning Guild, Training Magazine, ATD International, among others. I've learned a lot, becoming a much better presenter. The learning journey was a main reason why I spoke at these conferences in the first place. Now, after my recent presentations at DevLearn, I'm finally presenting at the level that I

  • I'm frustrated from my recent trip to yet another Learning & Development Conference. I'm frustrated because this is one of the BEST conferences around, with the greatest number of people with the greatest alignment to my particular L&D interests. I'm frustrated because I wonder what it's all for, and if it is even possible to make a difference in our community...before it's too late. Though I've worked in L&D since 2001, it was just two years ago I spoke at an L&D Conference for the very first time as President of Snap Synapse. In fact, it was this same conference (DevLearn) where I was co-presenting with a friend. We put a lot into it, and by the end of our

  • One of the L&D communities that we at Snap Synapse have been most proud to support is the Training, Learning, & Development Community (TLDC). Between the previous conference in San Diego and the daily livestream, the ongoing conversations spawned by TLDC have been some of the most rewarding, challenging, and fun! To continue with all the fun, Sam Rogers of Snap Synapse will again be speaking the Training, Learning, & Development Conference in January 2018 in Phoenix. The conference schedule has yet to be finalized, but you can expect that we'll be following up on our weekly Video Friday livestream presence.
