What Clients REALLY Want … from Presentations

Clients in Canada and around the world share a common purpose – ensuring that their external partners/suppliers (1) do great work, and (2) communicate the learning clearly to them, and their internal stakeholders.

So what do clients REALLY want once the learning journey has reached the reporting/presentation stage? We will find out on June 15th, as MRIA National conference attendees glean insights from clients in Canada, the US and Europe – who have shared their BEST and WORST presentations* ever.

* Note: to protect the innocent, all materials shown will be debranded/masked.
