"Who Does Training Better: Apple or Microsoft? You Decide"

Tuesday, March 19

4:00 - 6:00 pm

Microsoft® and Apple® both make strategic use of live training programs in their stores to attract and retain customers—so they must be good at it, right? Let’s see what we can learn about training (and the latest technologies) by attending a “Today at Apple” session and a “Personal Training” session at Microsoft. During our training expedition to Ala Moana Shopping Center you will participate in one 20-minute training session at each store. Then we'll meet as a group for a debriefing Q&A, networking, and happy hour refreshments at The Brilliant Ox gastropub and restaurant nearby in the center. Pupus provided (including vegetarian options). 

Questions we'll discuss:

1) Who did the training better—Apple or Microsoft? What were the strengths and weaknesses of each?

2) What were the advantages and disadvantages of the 20-minute time frame?

3) Is there one technology product/service/app you learned about you can take back and use in your organization? Describe how will you use it.

4) What ideas from these presentations did you get to improve your own presentation delivery?

5) Any ah-ha moments?
