Julian Junemann oQy4xDw5mA
  26. 26. Feedback from Outreach 1. Pitch & adjust the content level - by prequalifying users skill levels using anonymous form (as users will general over- estimate their skills level). 2. Twitter marketing on local training competitors is very effective for lead gen. 3. Try to find users who have had a bad training experience with a competitor.
  27. 27. Importance of training Reviews & recommendations
  28. 28. Phil is a Google Tag Manager guru. I worked with him on a complex implementation project for over 10 months and continued to be impressed by his GTM & GA skills. He provides creative solutions and is not shy about making recommendations or improvements that he believes will add value. Phil's expertise in Analytics and Google Tag Manager definitely make him a great resource to work with. Deeplaxmi Adke Director, Digital Analytics at National Geographic Society
  29. 29. Date: Thu, 30 Jun 2016 From: Marcela Leon To: Phil Hi Phil, I hope you are doing well. I wanted to thank you for all the work you did in setting ACRP up with GTM and Ecommerce tracking. Tracking has been amazing and I love seeing the data come through clean! As I mentioned to you in our early conversations, we’re undergoing a website redesign that’s scheduled for end of Sept - early Oct. During this time, eweb (ecommerce) has also been getting a facelift and going back to baseline. I wanted to bring these two projects back up to you in hopes that I can have some of your time as we get closer to launch to ensure GTM is still working appropriately and since our new website will be reactive to ensure we have mobile GA implemented, if needed. Another project, down the line, that I’m hoping to work with you on is to ensure all our platforms (external) can track ecommerce as well. I want to ensure we get a full picture of where our revenue is coming from. Thanks again and take care Marcela P.S. I also referred you to a colleague of mine, I’ve spoken highly of you and he was interested in your information. Marcela León Manager, Digital & Web Content Association of Clinical Research Professionals I wanted to thank you for all the work you did in setting ACRP up with GTM and Ecommerce tracking. Tracking has been amazing and I love seeing the data come through clean!
  30. 30. Date: Wed, 31 Dec 2014 From: Neil Dickson To: 'Phil' You too! Happy New Year! Neil Dickson | SEO Manager LinkedIn: londonseoconsultant Twitter: NeilDicksonDM From: Phil Sent: 31 December 2014 To: Neil Dickson Hi Neil, Ok, that makes sense! * Yes, I have done alot of tiding-up in the GA and GTM account & I am very keen for it to stay "well maintained". * I agree governance is needed for checking of Custom HTML and ensuring good processes when publishing to live. * The project is "all done" but... I made some refinement having checked the processed GA data, hence the GTM changes. Have a great new year :) Thanks Phil. I hired Phil in December 2014 to audit Marie Curie's Google Analytics & Google Tag Manager implementations. He did everything in the brief and more' in an incredibly quick time with very short notice. He also provided pro bono support after project closure. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Phil for GTM & GA implementations.

Design Training Materials. 5. Develop Your Training Materials. 6. Implement the Training. 7. Evaluate the Training 8. Rinse, Repeat & Refine
  34. 34. Planning a Training Session Workshop
  35. 35. Planning Objectives • By the end of this session, you will: – Understand how to plan a training session – Know what elements should be included in a training plan – Know the difference between a learning objective & learning outcome – Build measurement into your training plan
  36. 36. Building a Training Program • Assess • Design • Develop • Implement • Evaluate
  37. 37. Pre-Assessment • What do you need to know? – Who are you training? – The existing knowledge of training participants – Identify the gaps in what they know and what they need to know – How the training will help them accomplish their work – The type of training or job-related training they have already experienced
  38. 38. Pre-assessment methods • Needs assessment analysis – E.g. Pre-assessment questionnaire Discuss in pairs, 3 minutes – what other ways could you collect data?
  39. 39. Training Program - Design • Primary questions – What do I want learners to be able to do as a result of this training program? • Learning Objectives / Outcomes – What methods will I use to assist them to reach this level of performance and knowledge? • E.g. activities – What resources will be used to deliver this training program? – How will this training be structured overall?
  40. 40. Training Session - Structure • Starter – Normally 1-3 minutes – Introduction • Learning Objectives / Outcomes • Main Activity • Plenary – Assessment for Learning (Measurement)
  41. 41. Learning Outcomes • Learning outcomes are the framework of a training plan • Identify what students will be able to do as a result of participating in the training programme – For example: ‘Students in this workshop will be able to:..and demonstrate the following behaviours…’ • Explicit, concise, precise defined statements • Clearly identify the expected behaviour outcome(s)
  42. 42. Guidelines for Developing LOs • Learning outcomes should include the following components: – Results/outcome oriented – Measurable – Focused on only major job-related tasks – Behavioral statements (e.g., not just knowing or understanding something but demonstrating that they know it and understand it) – Specific and precise about what they are to be able to do – Clearly stated, no clutter “As a result of participating in this workshop, learners will be able to explain to students in a clear manner how to use the Harvard Referencing Standard to cite journal references”
  43. 43. Types of Learning Outcomes • Three major domains of learning: – Attitudinal Learning: Outcomes that aim to change or enhance a learner’s attitude or motivation about a subject. Changing a learner’s attitude about the quality of information found in Wikipedia – Cognitive Learning: Outcomes that aim to contribute to a learner’s body of knowledge about a topic. Providing statistics that show an increase in the targeted use of HINARI – Skill Learning: Outcomes that aim to help a learner perform a job-related, behavioral task. Training a learner to talk easily about the similarities and differences between databases
  44. 44. Group Activity: SMART Objectives • In pairs, review a lesson plan that you have already delivered (10 minutes) – Are they SMART objectives • Specific • Measurable • Achievable • Realistic • Time-bound – How could you make them SMARTer?
  45. 45. Selecting Learning Experiences • Determine what learning activities (strategies) are most effective and practical in the training context • Consider activities that cover a range of learning styles – Interactive Lecturette: – Class Discussion: – Small Group Exercises: 4-6 people – Two & Three-person Exercises – Case Studies
  46. 46. Example Learning Experiences – Interactive Lecturette: – Class Discussion: – Small Group Exercises: 4-6 people – Two & Three-person Exercises – Case Studies – Role-playing – Simulations – Games – Surveys – Quizzes – Short Writing Exercises – Observations – Hands-on Work in Field
  47. 47. Selecting Training Resources • Several kinds of training resources need to be identified: – Content Experts: Available/willing to assist in development of training? – Trainer(s): Available? Relevant experience? Cost? – Materials: Books, pens, manuals, equipment, name cards, food, etc. – Time: How long? Training delivered across several months or concentrated in a few days? – Multi-part training? When are learners available?
  48. 48. Developing training materials • Developing Materials • Training materials should be: – Easy to understand – Economically produced – Relevant to one or more learning outcomes. – Contribute as a secondary source of information and not act as the primary source – Complement the learning experiences in which learners are engaging
  49. 49. Developing training materials – Include as much practical, direct job-based information as possible. – Describe process-oriented tasks in a step-by step format, free of extraneous detail. – Include illustrative examples that support text- based information – Minimal - students will use them primarily as a reference.
  50. 50. Implement • Primary questions to answer when delivering training: – Is the trainer prepared to facilitate the learning experiences in an engaging manner? – Have the appropriate training materials been developed? – Have questions been developed to challenge learners and debrief the learning experience?
  51. 51. Engaging Learners • Ten Steps to being positively engaging: – Ask learners what they want to learn from the training, and then list them. – Probe learners with questions frequently; interactivity should be an primary characteristic of the training. – Encourage application of material by providing examples, posing job-based problems, and asking learners to consider how they might apply what they are learning.
  52. 52. Engaging Learners (2) – Quiz and give feedback in a nonthreatening way. – Start with questions instead of with providing information (talking ‘at’ students) – Pose alternative, thought-provoking questions and scenarios to get students to critique and question and get beyond the obvious. – Start with what learners know to empower them and identify what to build on. – Use both visual and aural (hearing) modes of learning.
  53. 53. Engaging Learner (3) – Use organizing techniques (e.g., ‘Okay, we’ve just that let’s move to...)that help learners keep track of where they are and what they’ve learned. – Use humor and stories to enhance content and maintain learner motivation. Deming, B., Ten Steps to being Positively Engaging, Training and Development, January 2001, pp. 18-19.
  54. 54. Questioning • Questions compel students to consider the information they are learning. They serve several learning purposes – Explaining: Asks students to explain their responses or poses a question that asks for elaboration. – Problem solving: Poses problems for students to answer. – Debriefing: After a class exercise or field study event, allows students to consider what they have experienced.
  55. 55. Questioning (2) • Predicting: Presents job-related, realistic hypothetical situations for students to consider. Hyman, R., ‘Discussing Strategies and Tactics,’ Questions, Questioning Techniques, and Effective Teaching (ed. W. Wilen), 1987, Washington, DC: national Education Association pp. 138-139
  56. 56. Feedback • Provide feedback on the learning experiences in which you just participated. – Was the learning experience engaging? – Was it appropriately interactive? – Was there a balance of instructor and student provided information? – Were questions posed that challenged students? – Did it help students meet the stated outcome? – Was it completed in a timely manner?
  57. 57. Evaluation • Primary questions to answer when evaluating training: – How can you assess if the learning outcomes are being addressed adequately during the development and delivery of training? – How can you evaluate the effectiveness of a training program immediately after the delivery of training? – How can you evaluate whether the learning from the training is being applied in a work setting after students complete a training program?
  58. 58. When to evaluate? • Evaluation of training can be separated into two primary categories: – Formative: Occurs while the training is being designed, developed, and delivered. – Summative: Usually completed immediately after training is conducted to evaluate the extent to which learners enjoyed and believed they received valuable learning. Can also be conducted over the course of weeks or months after training.
  59. 59. Evaluation Methods: Formative • There are several ways to evaluate the effectiveness of training during design, development, and delivery. – Needs Assessment Analysis – Content Expert Evaluation – Beta Test of Training / Pilot Testing – Pre and Post Training Questionnaire – Trainer Assessment – Student Questionnaire – Class Interview
  60. 60. Evaluation Methods: Summative • There are several ways to evaluate the effectiveness of training after a training has been conducted. – In-class Questionnaires – Post Training Questionnaires – Post Training Debrief – Interviews – Journals – Observations
  61. 61. Questions to Consider • When considering formative and summative evaluation methods for your own training program: – What kinds of evaluation are likely to be easiest to implement? Most difficult? – What kind of evaluation are learners most likely to respond to? Least likely? – What logistical issues do the various forms of evaluation pose for trainers and learners?
  62. 62. Developing a Lesson Plan • A session or lesson plan is a map that outlines the design of your training programme • In your group, identify the elements of a lesson plan, (20 mins) – What components of a lesson plan MUST be present? – Brainstorm and present your lesson plan template to the group
  63. 63. Planning Exercise – 20 minutes • Begin to develop a lesson plan for the presentation assignment – Write a statement for this learning outcome – Consider timings – Measurement techniques (AfL) – What is missing? – How could it be improved?

  67. 67. Meet Tim Fidgeon Trainer for content, online copywriting and mobile marketing courses Tell us about your career so far. I’m fascinated by how people think. In the 90s, digital emerged and clearly had the potential to change everything – marketing, commerce and inter-personal communications. So, I studied Human-Computer Interaction (MSc) and joined the fun. Overan exciting career, I have worked both client-side and agency-side. My goal is to keep learning about the relationships between audiences, technologies and business. Do you have any unspoken rules you work to when dealing with digital content? I always imagine that I’m trying to explain something to mymum! Do you have any work mistakes you’ve made that make you cringe? I once argued for ‘my idea’ in a meeting and was told that we were looking for the ‘best idea’ and that holding onto my ego was a mistake. They were right. What do you think makes for a great training experience for your trainingdelegates? Interactive exercises. Practical guidelines. Real-world research. Discussion of personal examples. Developing an Action Plan that delegates can take back to the office. What’s the biggest mistake someone can make with their online copy? The biggest mistake is to think that you know everything and to stop listening and experimenting. Why is digital content and great online copy so important? Content is the salesman, it closes the deal – everything else just gets you into theroom. Tim Fidgeon Online copywriting and content marketing Tim Fidgeon has been helping companies develop market-leading digital strategies, experiences and content since the late 90s. He is now a freelance trainer and consultant working with many brands including Coca-Cola, Sony, Vodafone and GeneralMotors.

  71. 71. Meet Michelle Goodall • Tell us a bit about your background and career so far. • I started off in digital 17 years ago and the agency I worked in did SEO, linkbuilding and PR campaign executions. We did a lot of digital ‘firsts’ – the first webchats in the UK, the first live • internet TV broadcast How do you like to run your training courses? And what do you think helps delegates to get the most out of them? I run them in a consultative way, bringing out as much talent and knowledge as I can in the room, so delegates get the opportunity to learn not just from me, but from others. I like to have fun, but I promise no cheesy ice-breakers or mime/puppet- led exercises… Do you have a ‘golden rule’ when it comes to social media? And if so, what is it? My advice if you are annoyed or angered by a social media post, is walk awayfrom your laptop or phone….never respond in anger orimmediately. So many things are missed in social posts – there’s limited room for humour and non-verbal signals such as a raised cheeky eyebrow. Much can be lost in translation. Above all, be nice. Be thoughtful. Be careful. Michelle Goodall Socialmedia Formerly Digital Director at Top 20 PR Agency Lexis PR, Michelle has over 14 years strategy communications consultancy and implementation experience. She was onthe London 2012 PR contingency committee and has been listed on Freshnetwork’s Top 20 social media speakers andexperts.

  77. 77. Meet Andrew HoodTell us a bit about your background and career so far. I had a fairly heady introduction to the world of digitalduring the dot com boom/bust in the late 1990s when everyone was making it up as they went along. I ended up running the technology behind what became the largest global hotel booking website at the time, and from that got into building analytics tools. I spun out one of those tools into a startup business (Lynchpin), evolved that to a consultancy and have been running that for the past 10 years. I’ve been an Econsultancy trainer for 8 years now. Any cringey mistakes you’ve made at work that you’d care to share with us? What did you learn from them? My first business ended up competing directly against Google with an analytics product we’d developed, and Google started giving it away for free! That wasn’t a lot of fun, but I learned a lot about sales, marketing, product development under pressure and I think what is now affectionately known as “pivoting” (i.e. rebuilding the business from scratch as a consultancy!). Do you have one fundamental piece of advice you would give to anyone involved in measurement and analysis? If so, what isit? Asking the right question is often much, much harder than pulling some data out or doing some sophisticated analysis, but ultimately that starting point makes or breaks theanalytics process. So focus on having clear objectives, asking the right questions, being clear on the outcome you’re looking for and don’t just dive in. What’s the most rewarding thing about being a trainer? Finding out that it has had a long term positive impact on a delegate’s role and/or career. It’s nice to get good feedback on the day, but much better to bump into someone andfind out it’s been helpful when they got back to the office. There’s a lot of talk about data-driven marketing. What’s your take on the relationship between data and creativity? It’s the fundamental relationship underpinning a decent test and learn approach: you need the data to prove if it works, and the creativity to come up with ideas to test in the first place.The challenge is staying robust with quantifying success while being experimental with trying new ideas. AndrewHood Intensive: Mastering Analytics Andrew Hood cut his internet teeth in 1999, heading up technical operations for the largest global hotel website of the dotcom boom, He is currently Managing Director of Lynchpin, helping clients including HSBC, Cartoon Network, Tesco Bank, Dyson, and the Government DigitalService.
