Presenter Benefits

Some benefits of presenting on behalf of the Chapter are:

  • Market, build, and advertise your own brand, business, and company.
  • Participate in our optional Marketing Campaign to promote you, your brand, and your event. We handle the logistics and will provide you an Ad Analysis Report.
  • Invite up to three other people to attend at no cost.
  • Advertise your company logo on our Presenter Page.
  • Discount on Chapter membership.
  • Two weeks before your event, we will promote your event on LinkedIn, Facebook, and our Chapter website.

About the Connect & Learn Program

C&L sessions provide a space for TD professionals to learn, share best practices, and make connections with other talent development enthusiasts!

Presenters choose a talent development topic that aligns with one of the 23 capabilities of the ATD Talent Development Capability Model. After introductions, the presenter has 50 minutes to present a dynamic and interactive learning presentation.

All events are scheduled for the second Thursday of each month (except no events in July or December) from 12pm -1pm and are held either virtually or in person.

Video Promotion

We encourage presenters to record video of themselves giving a brief (less than two minutes) introduction of themselves and their presentation topic. The Chapter will use the video to promote the presenter and the event on social media. Below are seven phone video recording tips, or view this short how-to video.

Note: While the ATD Treasure Valley will be happy to add a title to your video, the chapter will not do any additional video editing. Please provide the video in the form you would like it to be posted.

  • Camera setting - 1080P.
  • Turn off the sound on your notifications (for example, text and email notifications).
  • Clean the camera lens.
  • Use a tripod if possible.
  • Use live monitoring.
  • Frame yourself. Align left or right, not centered.
  • Use lots of lighting.

Who Attends the C&L Sessions?

Most of our attendees are talent development professionals who have at minimum of five plus years of experience in training and development, organizational development, or human resources.

Because of the attendees' experience and responsibilities, C&L sessions should take more of an informative, train-the-trainer format. Our goal is for attendees to practice, apply, and integrate the information into their workforce development plans and programs.
