November Program: Tool Time
Erica Swiatek from Independent Health led a large and enthusiastic audience though an interesting presentation and small group activity illustrating the use of five different tools for "Managing Change the Creative Way."
Erica’s presentation was very creative and interactive. You don’t get the opportunity to work with a group of peers from different organizations very often and that part was really fun! The materials and tools that Erica used were very easy to understand and the process made sense. Change Management is part of my everyday job responsibilities so I will be putting the tools presented to very good use. Thank you!

What do you get out of attending NFASTD programs?
This is my first year attending ASTD Niagara Frontier programs, and it has been a breath of fresh air. Not knowing what to expect when I get there, and then leaving equipped with tools to do better programming has been quite empowering for, and a confidence booster. I feel like I have grown, and at the same time increased my abilities and knowledge about professional development training. Thanks ASTD Niagara Frontier!

October Program: Adults Only
A large and enthusiastic audience was treated to a stimulating presentation about adult learning by Rebecca Boyle, Executive Director of Human Resources at Trocaire College and a Past President of our chapter.
Rebecca's presentation today was informative and thought provoking. Her facilitation of interactions with other participants in the room was a great demonstration of how to practice the concepts she shared. This event was of particular value to me since I'm kicking off a new initiative that requires creative approaches to converting classroom based training to a synchronous virtual classroom. I am particularly interested in trying out the flipped method in the curriculum redesign!
