Send in the clones… new Promo

MRWED CEO, Marc Ratcliffe is a busy guy and to help him out we have cloned him…Well not really. However, he is the focus of a new promotional campaign for our Train-the-Trainer Boot Camp. See him in cut-out form at our corporate events and in our dedicated Training and Assessment Centres around the country.

The Cook Book a hit at ASTD

Marc continues to inspire and motivate learners with his dynamic workshop “The Trainer’s Cook Book: 12 recipes for learning engagement success”. Today at the ASTD International Conference and Exposition, held in Washington D.C., 280 people were treated to a dynamic presentation which modelled learning engagement techniques featured in his new book.

Trainer’s Cook Book is hit of the presses

The Trainer’s Cook Book, the hotly anticipated follow-up to the Trainer’s Tool Kit (2011), is now available for purchase. The new book from Marc Ratcliffe uses the theme of planning a dinner party as an analogy for structuring the training experience. If you are overcooking the content and undercooking the experience, this book may be the answer for you as it supports the reader in implementing learning engagement success. To purchase your copy, contact MRWED on free call 1800 287 246.
