Hello everyone! My name is Ladek and my guest for today is Kirsten Rourke. She has been an eLearning and development speaker, technical trainer and consultant since 2000. She owns and operates Rourke Training, which provides speaking and training services. When not playing video games obsessively or singing show tunes mostly on-key, she works as a consultant and speaker helping others develop presenting and training skills using her Prep, Practice, and Pivot model. She can be found presenting at industry events, such as DevLearn or at rourketraining.com.
