Howard Cross is well known for those that are in the EFO program at the National Fire Academy. He has spent a significant portion of his professional career, more than twenty-five years, working with individuals and groups in both the private and public sectors, in developing their abilities as effective trainers/facilitators. It is not enough to merely PRESENT the information; one must make the information ALIVE!
Greg Flynn has over 15 years of teaching experience in pre-hospital care. In his current role as EMS captain for the West Bloomfield Fire Department, he oversees the operation and training of the EMS division. Greg was involved with the implementation of West Bloomfield’s videoconferencing system and routinely uses the system to administer training and facilitate meetings. Greg’s focus during this seminar will be how to assure that videoconferencing is not a barrier to content delivery. He will revisit rules that everyone has learned about PowerPoint Presentations and how to apply those rules to a “virtual” classroom. Greg also plans to have a workshop session at the end of the day, where participants can modify their own presentations and get feedback.
**Each Class Participant Is Strongly Encouraged To Bring A Laptop For The Workshop Session**
