CEEPS 2005 Workshops

For the third year in a row, the biggest star of the CEEPS conference was our unique Virtual Space format.  We tried something a little different this year, and it worked really well:  We have always asked registrants to share their expectations and desired outcomes when they sign up.  This year, we started to circulate those learning needs to other participants ahead of time.  Guess what happened?  Before they even left home, some practitioners saw needs that they could respond to and arrived equipped to offer sessions directly tailored to the desired outcomes of those individuals.  The more specific the expectations - the better the fit.  You can bet that we are going to ramp up this strategy for 2006!

We had more session time slots this year in anticipation of more workshops than ever before, and we were not disappointed.  Special thanks goes to Dr. Jim Cain, who offered a number of sessions himself, and then teamed up with others to moderate some very effective discussions.

As a result we had a terrific mix of professional polished presentations, sessions created on the fly in response to identified needs, and a huge amount of fun in the process.

The following is an overview of some of the sessions presented:

The bottom line is the same every year:  At no time does anyone regret that a time slot has no sessions of relevance or interest to them.  Step up to the plate, and you get precisely the learning you want and need.  There is no better way grow yourself than that.
