MasterMind Education Hacker:
Revolutionizing Your Organizations’ Learning Opportunities

Webinar • Wednesday, February 22, 2017


The Web is radically changing our connection to people and information. If your association’s professional development and learning programs aren’t changing just as radically, they’re falling short of what your members and customers want—and what your organization needs to grow.

Fortunately, four “MasterMind” education hacks can literally revolutionize the effectiveness and value of your programs.

Here’s your opportunity to learn how to leverage disruptive changes in content, the job of the speaker, the process of education and the role of technology to give your programs all-new power to make equally disruptive changes in participants’ skills, attitudes and behaviors.

In this 90-minute webinar, education and engagement expert Jeff Hurt shows you how to rethink your association’s education programming.  You’ll explore how Web connectivity changes the way we relate to people and information and discover how to apply “hacks” that are scientifically, biologically and cognitively sound ways to boost the effectiveness of what you offer and how you deliver it.

New power to change attitudes, behaviors and skills!  Step by step, Jeff Hurt helps you explore the new function of content, speakers and technology. You’ll learn how to apply disruptive strategies to align professional development with “MasterMind” hacks that raise the value of your programs. You can also ask your specific questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
