"Tools of the Trade Training" by Megan Powers

I'm getting my Masters in Communications & Leadership through Gonzaga University.

In my current course on Communication Training & Consulting, we were tasked with writing a paper on any aspect of training that we chose. I feel the education that occurs at conferences/conventions/seminars/meetings is extremely valuable. I explored that in my paper, which I was then tasked with putting into a presentation.

This is that presentation!
