    Bringing subject matter experts (SMEs) into the training process is one of the best things learning leaders can do. SMEs bring a depth of experience, enterprise-wide perspectives, and credibility to the learning process. But asking SMEs to perform this dual role also brings risk. While they want to do well in the classroom, it is an environment outside their expertise. In this session, we’ll explore the unique needs of SMEs and examine ways to design learning to help them be successful. We’ll also introduce a new language and explore nonthreatening coaching techniques to help them deliver the content effectively.

     Key Takeaways:

    • Position training with SMEs as a conversation that is to be facilitated rather than a speech that is to be perfected, and design learning with SMEs in mind to allow for that conversation to take place
    • Use a framing strategy to help SMEs plan for and manage the learning conversation
    • Coach SMEs to facilitate the learning conversation
     Who Should Attend:
    • This session is for anyone who designs for, or coaches SMEs, to be more effective in the training room.
    • Learning leaders will also benefit by understanding how to ensure that SME-led training is effective and that SMEs are more TD savvy.

    ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

    Dale Ludwig, President & Founder of Turpin Communication, has a Ph.D. in Communication and, prior to Turpin, taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He founded Turpin Communication in 1992. Since then he has worked to keep Turpin focused on providing the best presentation and facilitation skills training available. The Turpin name is a reference to a fictional character in one of Dale’s favorite short stories. It was chosen not because the fictional Turpin had anything to do with presenting or training, but rather because the name sounds nice next to “Communication” and isn’t too hard to spell.

    Dale is a frequent blogger and co-author of the book The Orderly Conversation: Business Presentations Redefined. Learn about the book at www.TheOrderlyConversation.com. He’s excited about his latest book, also co-authored with Greg Owen-Boger, which is entitled Effective SMEs: A Trainer’s Guide to Helping Subject Matter Experts Facilitate Learning.

    Greg Owen-Boger, Vice President of Turpin Communication, has been with Turpin Communication since 1995, first as a cameraman, then instructor, account manager, and now vice president. Schooled in management and the performing arts, Greg brings a diverse set of skills and experiences to the organization. Greg is one of Turpin’s facilitators and coaches. 

    Greg is an active member of the Association for Talent Development (ATD) and was the 2015 President of ATD, Chicagoland Chapter. He is a popular speaker, frequent blogger and co-author of the book The Orderly Conversation: Business Presentations Redefined. His latest book, also co-authored by Dale Ludwig, will be out in Fall 2017.
