Last Friday, you heard me share the microphone with Mike Lander, one of our SPI Pro members, to teach you a workshop about how to literally negotiate anything. Today is our second installment in this new “Teaching Friday” series where we tap into the amazing knowledge of folks in the SPI audience and our SPI Pro community, and I'm excited to welcome another SPI Pro member, Trudy Rankin of Online Business Liftoff.
Today, Trudy will be sharing some of her deep knowledge about creating life-changing workshops and masterclasses, with a twist. What's the twist? It's an interactive diagnostic tool that you pair with your workshop that complements and creates synergies with what you're teaching. This twist will help your workshop or teaching event have even more of an impact on your students and clients.
First, Trudy will walk you step-by-step through some crucial pre-planning questions. Then, she'll cover the questions you'll need to think about when you're designing your training session so that you can also design and create an interactive diagnostic tool to go with it—the twist. Then she'll walk you through the things you need to think about in order to create that interactive tool. Lastly, she'll talk about the software you can use to actually build the tool.
These Teaching Fridays are new, and they're not necessarily permanent. They might be, but we're experimenting! We'd love to know what you think of them, so hit me up @patflynn on Instagram or Twitter.
Today's Guest Host
Shortly after Trudy Rankin left her corporate career to start her own business, she helped a young man with vision impairment figure out how to make money from the blog he was writing. That was the start of Online Business Lift-Off program, which has now helped over one hundred people who can’t work a traditional 9-to-5 job start and grow their own online business. With over fifteen years experience as a manager and CIO working with technology (digital and non-digital), Trudy now loves working with people as they figure out how they can use their expertise, strengths, passion, and personality to help others and create new opportunities for themselves and their families.
Trudy and her husband have lived in the US, Hong Kong, and New Zealand and now live in Melbourne, Australia. In the process of all that moving around, they managed to pass on their love of travel and adventure to their two adult children, who now live on separate continents. Which, thanks to COVID, makes visiting a bit tricky. Trudy is definitely looking forward to being able to travel internationally again… without having to worry about snap lockdowns shutting down borders.
