Calling all Trainers!!

The ATD Smoky Mountain Chapter is seeking trainers for our December Trainer Throw-Down! This is going to be an exciting event to close out this year's batch of quality programming. 

We invite you to participate in this friendly competition to show the membership and guests your training chops and receive the GLORY of winning our first ever Trainer Throw-Down. Up to five contestants will have 10 minutes to present on the topic of CHANGE. We encourage trainers, coaches, and OD professionals to pull from their bag of tricks items such as cool icebreakers, innovative coaching techniques, or anything else that will WOW the audience. One competitor will win the ultimate prize (a $100 VISA gift card), based on audience ratings.
