Are you throwing your time and money away with training presentations that are quickly forgotten? Check out this video on making training presentations more effective for your team. You’ll learn:
- How fast we forget.
- What it takes to retain knowledge.
- How to stop wasting time and money on training.
- How just 10 minutes of review can help your team “overcome the forgetting curve” and boost your ROI.

According to the Ebbinghaus Curve + Article: University of Waterloo, within 24 hours of getting new information, participants who spend 10 minutes reviewing it will raise the curve almost to 100% again. A week later, it only takes 5 minutes to “reactivate” the same material and again raise the curve. By day 30, your brain will only need 2-4 minutes to give you the feedback, “Yes, I know that…”
