Episode 5 - Progress over Perfection with Diane Elkins
Powerpoint? Y'all talkin' bout POWERPoint? (spoken in your best Allen Iverson voice).
YES! Diane Elkins elevates Powerpoint the way a Michelin Star chef elevates simple ingredients into culinary masterpieces. Her workshop '25 Things you Didn't Know Powerpoint Can Do' is regularly featured at L&D Philly to support new trainers and provide veterans with time-saving tips to solve problems like accessibility and translations.
Diane and Josh also discuss her focus on Accessibility in eLearning and the need for progress in this aspect of asynchronous training delivery. Tune in for additional commentary from her cat, George, who confirms the need for progress over 'puuuuurfection'

Episode 3- Live, Laugh, Learn with Theresa Hummel-Krallinger
The lines between work and 'life' have become increasingly blurry in the past 2 year. Employees at all levels are considering how their contributions matter. As a result, employee engagement is a topic on everyone's mind in the L&D world. Whether you are in the office, remote, or even a mix of both, the challenge of engagement often falls to the L&D teams as champions of corporate culture initiatives.
In this episode Josh is joined by Theresa Hummel-Krallinger. Theresa is a trainer, speaker, comedian, and Emmy award winner who believes training teams can serve a noble purpose; ensure the human connection for purpose in our work does not get overshadowed by profit. As the host of 'Meet the Author', Theresa shares book recommendations how she balances her performance career with her training schedule.
