No, not a full frontal lobotomy. Nor a behind the scenes look at the private parts.rnrnIt’s time to focus on engaging your brain at a higher level. It’s time to think smarter. It’s time to equip your brain with the ability to conquer the complexities of 21st Century work by going full frontal!
Every day, you use your brain to complete your most important work. A maze of intricate neural networks act as the engine to solve challenges, to innovate, to learn, to plan, to reason, to manage your emotions, to think strategically. These networks connect past experiences and knowledge to today’s challenges.
Healthy resilient brains wire and fire across four major lobes: frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital.
The frontal lobe of your brain acts as the central command center. It links information back and forth across other brain regions. It’s where the executive functions of your brain reside. It’s where you do higher order thinking skills, like decision-making, planning, strategic thinking and more. If you want to work smarter, more efficiently and more effectively, you’ve got to practice going full frontal—leading from your frontal lobes--with transformative thinking.'

About the webinar:
When we think of the marriage between one's AMS/CRM and their LMS we tend to focus on the seamless process that allows learners to be automatically authenticated once logged into one of the programs. We call it an integration which focuses on the connection between the two. While this is a foundation for which the two systems work hand in hand, there are a number of higher-level or strategic benefits that go unnoticed.
In this webinar, we will delve into the hidden benefits of leveraging data to drive customized learning experiences.

CommPartners is sponsoring Learning ¥ Technology ¥ Design, a virtual conference hosted by Leading Learning on February 25 and 27!
Learning ¥ Technology ¥ Design (LTD, for short) is an online conference designed specifically for those who work in the business of lifelong learning, continuing education, and professional development. The goal is to help attendees maximize the reach, revenue, and impact of the offerings in their learning portfolio.
One of the things we really like about LTD is that the folks at Leading Learning "walk the walk" and work to find the most effective ways to deliver and facilitate adult learning experiences. This year they've designed LTD as a two-day event but with a gap day in between, to allow some time for reflection and potentially application after day 1 and before day 2 starts. You can find out much more about Learning ¥ Technology ¥ Design 2020 at https://ltd.leadinglearning.com, but here's a quick snapshot of what it'll offer:(4) 75-minute plenary sessions--one on the state of digital learning (and really learning in general), one on marketing and getting customers to click that "Buy" button, one on design thinking and learning experience, and one on online communities and their role in learning(12) 45-minute concurrents sessions, covering topics like action mapping, career pathways, converting place-based learning to a virtual format, metalearning, data-driven decision-making, and more(4) brief priming and synthesis sessions to start and end of each day, with a focus on bringing everything togetherAn optional Follow-Up Friday--a participant-driven Q&A/discussion/reflection session
If you're interested in participating, you can use the code org100cp for $100 off an organizational registration (good for a group of up to 5 people) or ind50cp for $50 off an individual registration through EOD Friday, February 14. We hope you'll join us at LTD. We think it's going to be a high-value event. If you have any questions, let us know, or feel free to contact the folks at Leading Learning directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Why do we like learning in a fun, interactive setting with classmates rather than learning alone at a computer? The key is in the psychology of social learning. We learn better when we can interact with and collaborate with others.
Join CommPartners’ Sam Hirsch and Higher Logic's Michael Davenport on Wednesday, August 19 at 1 p.m. ET to hear how you can recreate the interactive, fun, and enjoyable experience of social learning with an online community and learning management system.
In this session, you will learn how to:
- Provide more valuable, satisfying virtual learning experiences.
- Increase member engagement and encourage repeat learning.
- Build new revenue streams with an integrated, interactive educational program for members.
As a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, many associations are forced to shift from in-person conferences to virtual events and many predict that virtual or hybrid events will be the way of the future.
Join us as Association Technology Solutions (ATS) and CommPartners review:
- What you should consider when shifting to a virtual event.
- Tools for delivering virtual concurrent sessions.
- Tips for making your virtual conference interactive.
- How sponsors and vendors can effectively interact with attendees.
- Increase & measure attendee engagement.
- Tips for how to handle continuing education through a virtual event.
This webinar will leverage the experience of CommPartners, a leading provider of virtual events for associations, to provide tips you can use to get started with virtual events or maximize your existing event.
Associations offer a lot of educational opportunities. Start by counting the in-person and digital offerings. Then add in the publications and other association assets that deliver instruction, and you’ll see it adds up quickly. Most of us organize this content chronologically: When did it last occur or what registration opens next? But what if we adopted the characteristics of a university advisor? Individualized assessments, hand-picked courses, a clear pathway to graduation, course corrections along the way, and, ultimately, a certificate to demonstrate achievement.
Hear Event Garde, CEO, Aaron Wolowiec and CommPartners, CEO, Rich Finstein, share how important it is for learners to receive more personalized learning recommendations. These pathways could be for stand-alone courses or a clear path comprising of a series of learning interventions, resulting in greater engagement and a higher return on their investment.
In this session:
- Identify your association’s current education assets.
- Evaluate your association’s current organization of education assets.
- Examine segmentation as a means of better organizing education assets.
- Explore better organizing of education assets for a sample segment.
- Consider the marketing implications associated with reorganizing content.

Faced with this situation, we were forced to innovate quickly. The result was new ways to eliminate the distance and bring forth compelling educational content.
As we catch our breath, it’s time to take a fresh look at an old standby: Webinars. This past year has changed these programs. But what does change mean, and how can organizations make this transformation work for them? Join us as we discuss how to best position and produce your webinars for future success.

Organizations have been producing hybrid events for many years. So what has changed? The answer is everything. This past year taught us about the power and reach of virtual education programming. We innovated, were more inclusive and in many cases expanded our reach to those who may have not previously attended an onsite conference. Does it make sense to go back to the way it was once the pandemic is over. We have heard from some organizations who are moving forward with plans for a hybrid event while others are hesitant because they don’t want to take away from their place based programs. Where do you stand on this. We will explore this question and address strategies and tactics for leveraging everything we learned last year as we make plans to return to traditional onsite conferences. Additional takeaways include:
- Producing hybrid events from an online education perspective
- Cost and production considerations
- Weaving your hybrid event into our online education and LMS strategy
Our speaker for this webinar is Jeff Hurt, CEO and Chief Epiphany Officer,Empowered Epiphanies.
One CAE Credit will be provided for live attendance.
