At Acumen Learning, we thrive on participation and interaction with our session trainees. Our financial consultants love coming to your company and spreading their excitement surrounding business acumen. When the COVID pandemic hit, everything went virtual. While this wasn’t a problem for our trainers because we’ve been teaching courses digitally for years, they have missed seeing the people they teach in person! So, when we heard the ATD Conference in September 2021 was moving forward with in-person offerings, we were thrilled!
On Tuesday, August 31 at 5 pm, New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, and our Founder and CEO, Kevin Cope presented his “Building Business Acumen: What Your CEO Needs You to Know” session to a packed room of ATD 2021 show attendees. “I was thrilled to be back, live, in front of the ATD community,” said Cope. And the crowd was excited to have him! I know, as a team member at Acumen Learning, I’m biased, but there was definitely electric energy in the room. But, don’t just take my word for it — how about listening to the attendees themselves!
For the ATD session, Kevin’s presentation received the highest score from the ATD attendees! His average session rating achieved top marks with a 5 out of 5, but his speaking rating...well...
Just kidding! That was a 5 out of 5 too. On top of these phenomenal ratings, we also received some great feedback from the crowd including:
Good info delivered in a fun interactive way; Very good explanation of a business plan template and the key points to consider based on your company’s profile.
Kept us engaged and involved. Well done; Very passionate and educated on the topic. Very good at instigating audience participation.
I know that business acumen can be a tough topic… it’s sometimes misunderstood as a complicated topic to understand, especially in a room full of HR professionals that have such varying levels of understanding of finance. However, as the feedback demonstrates and, I think anyone that was in that room can attest, Kevin and our team of financial consultants have really been able to hone in on the material, allowing them to present it in a fun and engaging way that makes it easy for even the most inexperienced in finance to understand.
