"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). During our training expedition to Ala Moana Shopping Center you will participate in a 30-minute training session at either store. 


This is an update from the initial advertisement, which was to provide a brief 20-minute session and rotation. This allows participants more time to engage with the trainers, ask questions, and walk away with a tangible new skill, while maintaining the chance to learn during the debrief afterward, and still have time for networking. 

After the training, we'll meet as a group for a debrief, networking, and happy hour refreshments at The Brilliant Ox gastropub and restaurant nearby in the center. Pupus provided (including vegetarian options). 

Training Topics to Choose From:

  • Apple - "Video Skills: Storytelling with Clips". Attendees will learn how to create visual stories using the free Clips app on iPad and iPhone. You'll collaborate with others and create a short video to share. 
  • Microsoft - "Shift To A Modern Workspace with Microsoft Teams". This workshop introduces you to Teams, the powerful hub for teamwork from Office 365, where you can chat, meet, share files, and use business apps.
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 30-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 a-ha moments?
