Connect2Classes Visits The School For Visual Concepts (SVC)

How to Write a Brilliant Creative Brief workshop lives up to its name

Learning new skills is a great investment, but how do you know which classes are worth your time? The Connect2Classes team are helping you figure it out by trying out workshops from their top course providers themselves and seeing who earns their stamp of approval.

First up was Seattle’s School of Visual Concepts (SVC), an industry-leader in delivering classes taught by working professionals in marketing, branding, design and content creation.

Michael Duarte-Pedrosa, VP of Sales at Connect2Classes, recently participated in the How to Write a Brilliant Creative Brief workshop at SVC. If you work with any creative team, learning how to develop a quality creative brief is an indispensable skill. It helps define the problem and create the framework to solve it.

“SVC provided an intimate class of nine students made up of designers and marketers from the Seattle area. The experience was as brilliant as the course title would suggest,” said Michael.

“This particular course was led by Hillary Miller, a VP from a Seattle-based advertising firm. Her delivery was playful and the course content was practical,” Michael shared. “We all left with real world examples, along with simple tips and tricks to developing a great creative brief.”

“Hillary made her lessons relatable. She suggested that we approach each brief from the ‘right altitude’. It’s like reading with aging eyes — one needs to hold the passage at the correct distance allowing your eyes to focus on the letters and words,” Michael learned.

“If you or your organization have not used creative briefs previously or have lost sight of why you should, this workshop will equip you with the tools and motivation to do so.”

SVC has created an exceptional learning environment with a beautiful facility, a responsive administrative team, and professional guest instructors — all evidenced by the exceptional student reviews and enrollment in multiple courses.

Now is the time to springboard your brand or marketing initiatives to the next level by checking out current and future SVC course offerings on Connect2Classes.com.

Watch for our full series of Connect2Classes tested courses in the coming months.

An Evening of Food, Wine and Learning with Connect2Classes and Eat Seattle

Celebrity Blogger Dawn Smith of Revel and Glitter Attended a Pike Place Market Tour and Cooking Class Meal Experience

This is a sponsored post; payment, trade and/or products have been received in exchange for promotion for Connect2Classes and Eat Seattle and as always, all opinions are my own. — Dawn Smith, Revel and Glitter

One of my favorite things about living in the Seattle/Pacific Northwest area, besides the amazing scenery and outdoor activities, is the food! We are moving up the list as the “it” food and wine city, thanks to the abundance of wineries in Eastern Washington.

Combine that with my love of learning, the answer was a resounding yes when the founder of Eat Seattle Classes and Tours, Chef Liz McCune, and Connect2Classes invited me to attend one of her cooking classes. Cooking and drinking wine? That is my type of evening.

We all met at the the beautiful Atrium Kitchen in the Pike Place Market. Which I didn’t even know existed, in a building I’ve never been in. And I’ve lived and been coming to the market for over 13 years. The learning has already begun. Eat Seattle’s cooking classes consists of a tour through the market where Chef Liz and Chef Jay Midwood explained the local and seasonal produce they selected as the ingredients for our menu.

Again, an urban garden in the middle of the market that I had no idea about. It helps to supplement fresh produce already provided at the Food Bank and Senior Center and offers the market senior residents the opportunity to garden and socialize with each other. The public can walk through; there are beautiful views of the Puget Sound. But it is definately the first rule of the secret urban garden…nobody talks about the secret urban garden.

We head down to the bustling market to pick up a few items for our meal, visiting some of the chefs’ favorite vendors. The third thing I learned, truly ripe nectarines taste like ripe peaches. I like peaches…I don’t like nectarines. Apparently why, because I’ve been eating them all wrong.

We headed back to the kitchen, where we wash up and prepare for the festivities, including nibbling on Beecher’s cheese and crackers with a lovely glass of wine. I mention Beecher’s because a. they are local and b. I LOVE THEIR CHEESE!

The format is a combination of hands-on and demonstration to ensure that everyone gets the most of the teachings and those that would like to participate can do so. Which means you can jump in and help…or sit back and enjoy your wine. We all did both.

Yes, this is me gutting what must be the world’s largest heirloom tomatoes. They come in later for our meal starter…

Meanwhile, Chef Jay is giving us fabulous tips and instructions on the preparation of the menu; he was so informative providing tips on cooking techniques, info about the meal and and random Seattle history.

I learned so much information! For example, I have never heard of the tonka bean, that helped make our dessert. Apparently it is super-hot in the cosmetics world and can be purchased much cheaper through those avenues than through the culinary side. Much like nutmeg, it is toxic in high doses. And very expensive in small doses.

But what you really want to hear about is our gourmet dishes. All the ingredients used were sourced in the Northwest and 100% organic, and our meal designed to maximize those seasonal flavors. This is our starter, the before mentioned heirloom tomato, stuffed with a salmon rillettes with a truffle oil vinaigrette and edible flower petals.

Our main course, seared ling cod with potato, fennel, orange and mint salad.

We ended with the tonka bean sponge with strawberries, blueberries topped with whipped chantilly. That’s just a fancy way of saying when whipping the cream, you stop when there are soft peaks so it is still a little runny.

I had an amazing evening and although I was a third wheel, everyone there was a couple or came with a friend, the atmosphere was so inviting, I didn’t feel alone or awkward. There was so much to see and be engaged with. I am so bringing my husband for another class.

Be sure and follow Chef Liz on Instagram @Eat_Seattle on her food adventures through our beautiful Seattle!

Go Back to School and Build Your Career

Everyone Can Benefit From Being Current and Savvy About New Technologies, Business Practices, and Other Learning Trends

Technological change demands stronger and more continuous connections between education and employment. –Andrew Palmer, The Economist

As technology advances, it’s no longer enough to rely solely on formal education and college degrees when seeking employment. We need to be learning all the time as we adapt to changing conditions in our jobs, careers, and business markets.

The Economist recently published an article on the importance of lifelong learning in the modern age. The industrial revolution has been replaced by the information revolution and the knowledge economy, and jobs are changing: the jobs of the future will be less repetitive, more centered around technological innovation, more creative, more challenging — and more rewarding.

So how can we prepare for these changes in how we work? The answer is lifelong learning, which continues over the course of a person’s entire career.

“A college degree at the start of a working career does not answer the need for the continuous acquisition of new skills, especially as career spans are lengthening,” says The Economist. “Vocational training is good at giving people job-specific skills, but those, too, will need to be updated over and over again during a career lasting decades.”

Understanding the importance of continuous learning is essential to success. And the younger you are, the more obvious it is. Those who rely heavily on the Internet are learning all the time — they’ve developed the key skill of learning to learn. Even in the age of Internet, though, there’s still a place for classes, workshops and bootcamps that boost learning to new heights. Companies now spend less money on training and professional development, so it’s important for employees to have their own continuous learning strategies.

“According to the Pew survey, 54% of all working Americans think it will be essential to develop new skills throughout their working lives; among adults under 30 the number goes up to 61%,” The Economist tells us. “Another survey, conducted by Manpower in 2016, found that 93% of millennials were willing to spend their own money on further training.”

Connect2Classes wants you to find success in learning and in your career. We offer thousands of classes to help you boost your skills, keep your knowledge up-to-date and stay afloat in a competitive workforce. Regardless of your field, skills like software knowledge, social media know-how and graphic design are incredibly useful. And life skills like project management, team leadership and conflict resolution are critical to any successful career.

It’s time to get ready for the future with Connect2Classes and our wide array of online and in-person classes in Seattle and the San Francisco Bay Area. Start your lifelong learning now, and invest in your career.

Amp Up Your Group Grilling Game with Seattle’s BBQ and Grilling School

BBQ and Grilling Classes

Connect2Classes offers group BBQ classes for team and client appreciation events

Looking for a unique alternative to your usual work party barbeque? With Connect2Classes, you can set up a group BBQ class for your team to eat, bond, and learn some grilling skills. Seattle’s summertime experts are on hand to guide students from the basics to the master-level skills of BBQ and grilling.

Local grill master Stu McMullen, of Seattle’s BBQ and Grilling School, has travelled to BBQ and grilling contests across the country, in cities like St. Louis, Memphis and New Orleans. He’s also taken classes at the Western Culinary Institute and travelled widely in Asia. He currently works with local BBQ and grilling chefs, including Eric “the Sauce King” Viken, Tom “Make It Happen” Von Glahn and Ken “Barbecue Extraordinaire” Dahlstrom.

Stu’s skillset now covers the best practices of many classic BBQ and grilling traditions, and he’s sharing his knowledge with students through all kinds of events. These aren’t limited to team appreciation events, either. Sharon, a local real estate entrepreneur, commented on her recent experience designing a private event with the BBQ and Grilling School.

“It was four hours of fun followed by an hour of eating!” Sharon says. “I followed the lead of some of my friends and sponsored a cooking class for some of my real estate clients.”

Sharon’s event was a huge hit. “Not only did I generate some new leads for some real estate sales, but the group had a great time,” she says. “I plan to repeat this experience every 6 months with my new clients. Not only is it a great way to show my appreciation to my clients but it is a great way to generate new leads. I will recoup my costs many times over while having a great time learning new cooking skills.”

If you have an upcoming team event, need to plan a work party, or want to show your clients some appreciation, consider a cooking class with the Seattle BBQ and Grilling School or another local Cooking School. Connect2Classes can arrange an event for you, your colleagues, new leads, family or friends.

A recent transplant from South India, Arundhati started her Seattle-based yoga studio to bring the best of yoga philosophy and practice from her homeland. Yoga transforms people’s lives and Arundhati brings the best in both physical and spiritual practices of yoga. Yoga is among the safest ways to beat stress, depression, improve posture & flexibility, enhance strength and improve concentration. Modern research is uncovering more benefits of yoga each day!

Learning Experiences Are Gifts to Remember

Learning is Experience

 

When we give others the gift of experience, especially transformational experiences, we give them so much more than any physical gift. We give them opportunities to fuel their passions, get inspired and motivated, and we can even set them on a path towards ever greater learning and success in life.

Why do experiences matter?

Our brains are hard-wired for memories that are tied to experiences that stir up our emotions. The Harvard Business Review’s Elements of Value Pyramid illustrates how people perceive the benefits of products and services that are available to them. There are several elements that demonstrate the allure of novel and life-changing experiences. The emotional and life-changing layers are indicative of personal change associated with experiences that truly resonate. Such resonance is the magnetism that keeps people coming back with the hope of re-creating pleasurable experiences that have stuck in their memories.

We have identified 30 “elements of value”—fundamental attributes in their most essential and discrete forms. These elements fall into four categories: functional, emotional, life changing, and social impact. – Harvard Business Review

Creating Emotional Connections and Lifelong Memories

This sort of emotional engagement works in a variety of ways, and is so powerful when it comes to learning new things!

People don’t actually buy products and services. We buy experiences that leave lasting memories. Exposure to something new and unfamiliar increases the release of dopamine in the brain. Novelty motivates people to expect pleasure.- Shayla Price

What is delight really about? Surprise. Novelty. Wonder. The unexpected. Deviating from business as usual and injecting awe, a visceral emotion reaction, into the learning journey. Novelty and surprise fuel the pleasure-seeking reward centers of our brain, which is exactly the opposite of evoking a stress response due to poor product or service experience. The brain chemicals matter when it comes to making memories. These are also the sorts of experiences that people are prone to share, and to ask people to join in on.

How do memories develop and stick with us? And how does that impact learning? It’s about responding to latent human needs for novelty and surprise, the cornerstones of delight.

The experiences we remember are defined by change. Our stories are made up of experiences that are new, novel and those that have greater significance. We actually don’t choose between experiences, we choose between memories of experiences. And even when we think about the future, we don’t think of our future normally as experiences. We think of our future as anticipated memories. –Daniel Kahneman

Learning Experiences Are the Very Best Gifts!

Holiday classes

We used to think that human brains are vessels to be filled with things they need to know. But we all know that lecture-based teaching often puts learners to sleep! Thankfully, there has been a renaissance in learning in recent years. For example, project-based learning is now of major interest for both kid and adult learning. Learning, it turns out, is an individual effort that relies on a person’s passion to learn new things. Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience.

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. – Benjamin Franklin

We must be involved and engaged to truly learn, and if you want to learn new things, or want to help a loved one learn, knowing how we learn best will help. It can also help people discover how much they love to learn and create, which as we know, makes us all happier!

What fuels our passion?
Learning happens naturally when the subject matter is something we’re intrigued by. Know someone who loves home improvement shows? Gift them a woodworking or remodelling class!

How do we learn best?
Some of us thrive while reading or writing, but many of us are visual or kinesthetic (learning by doing) learners. Young learners, in particular, can struggle in school where they need to sit still, so show them how much they love to learn with a class or workshop tailored to their interests.

How do we learn tangible skills like cooking, arts, crafts, or DIY?
There has long been a tradition of teaming masters like chefs and artists with apprentices to learn their craft. Many of us need to watch skilled practitioners and learn skills and tips step-by-step.

How do we remember what we learn?
While we might immediately forget a chapter we read in a how-to book or even the content of a video, hands-on learning experiences allow us to learn while getting feedback from experts.

What can we learn that will make a difference to our lives?
Improving career and business skills, as well as life skills like relationships, benefits us enormously. It’s so important to stay current, even if it involves learning about something we’ve never heard of!

We’d love for you to give the gift of experience this holiday season! Gift certificates are available! Great gifts for far-flung loved ones, or even for a class you can take together! One of our grandmothers decided on sushi-making classes for her 12-year old grandson – what can you choose to wow those you love?

In Stressful Times, Inner Peace is The Way – 10 Tips to Get You There

stressful times

It’s been difficult to watch the eruption of discord and violence that has been all around us recently. A lot of us are finding it challenging to know how to respond, especially as our deep-seated urges for peace and stability seem to be called into question.

Here are 10 ways to discover the peace within you, and to share it with others:

  1. Educate yourself – spirituality, philosophy, and other reflective practices will help you find your center, and will keep you grounded in these tumultuous times.
  2. Cultivate awareness, compassion and empathy to help you understand diverse points of view and to respond appropriately.
  3. Learn to use your voice to promote the world-view that is most meaningful to you – read and watch things that make you feel good and don’t forget to share them with others!
  4. Engage in daily practices to re-connect with your body – yoga, surfing, hiking, walking, and meditation will add a bit of zen to your days.
  5. Treat yourself well – endulge in pleasures that engage your senses, like massage, dancing, and aromatherapy. Invite loved ones, too, and foster the peace between you.
  6. Bond with those closest to you – doing fun things together and learning new things strengthens your connections.
  7. Make new friends with shared interests, or even find kindred spirits – join communities that resonate with you, and learn with like-minded people.
  8. Remind yourself that together we can achieve great things – baby steps matter, and each and every voice counts, so keep the faith that our topsy-turvy world will right itself.
  9. Share your spiritual journey and skills with others – people need to understand that there are alternatives to being stuck in a rut.
  10. Remember that you are loved, and work on confidence, self-esteem, and forgiveness of self and others.

Why Making Things Helps Us Thrive

We can all use more things in our life that make us feel happy and fulfilled. There has been a cultural renaissance these last few years as we learn more about what really motivates people. It’s something we nearly lost in our manufacturing-heavy culture: the pleasure associated with making things and sharing one’s creations with others. This is also a business opportunity, so read on if you are intrigued by the idea of turning your passion into an enterprise.

This is a revolution. If you can imagine it, you can make it. And that’s new to the world. – Mark Hatch, CEO, Maker Media

Your Brain on Creativity

csp5g2uukaap-uy

Why does making and sharing things feel so good? It begins with creativity, one of those things that spurs us on to ever greater accomplishments. There is nothing quite like creative experiences to throttle our brains into happier brain chemistry by putting us into the flow states associated with positive psychology. And creative thinking also has benefits in other parts of our lives: it improves problem-solving, big picture and design thinking, as well as collaboration with others.

It doesn’t matter whether you are into art, crafts, DIY, or tinkering, your brain loves to create and rewards you for doing so. The process of creating and sharing your creations releases dopamine, a natural anti-depressant in your brain. Dopamine is the brain chemical associated with reward and the pleasurable sensations that come from it. It’s like we are wired to create. But legions of artists, crafters, do-it-yourselfers and makers could tell you that!

There’s survey evidence to support crafting’s dopamine effect. In one study of more than 3,500 knitters, published in The British Journal of Occupational Therapy, 81% of respondents with depression reported feeling happy after knitting. More than half reported feeling “very happy.”

The positive effect of creative activities is well-documented in the scientific literature. Creativity and the novel experiences associated with it keep the brain agile and also motivate us. Things as simple as coloring or doodling encourage this effect, but the most benefit comes from ongoing creative pursuits:

Crafting can help those who suffer from anxiety, depression or chronic pain, experts say. It may also ease stress, increase happiness and protect the brain from damage caused by aging. – CNN

Do Schools Kill Creativity?

The following talk by British educator Sir Ken Robinson is one of the most popular TED Talks of all time. He argues that creativity is more important than literacy and that traditional schooling kills creativity. This is especially true now that home economics, woodshop, arts, and music are disappearing from schools. Less young people are learning how to cook, sew, and build via formal education, although classes, camps and after-school activities are filling the gap. Robinson says that our innate drive to create and to embrace trial and error are not valued in an educational system that tries to minimize failure. Creativity also tends to be multi-disciplinary, which is not widely embraced in our siloed educational systems.

DIY & Maker Culture

A major trend the last decade or so has been a shift towards people becoming more and more creative and leveraging that creativity to explore new interests or even launch new businesses. We’re creating handmade and one-of-a-kind items that stand out in the world of mass manufacturing. Some of us are launching businesses on sites like Etsy, an extravaganza of novel items launched from creative brains (which boasts 25 million shoppers). This has been fueled, as well, by the recession economy that has turned so many people into entrepreneurs:

In a world of mass-produced products, modern technology has made it easier than ever for a single individual to create and distribute items that are customizable and unique without having middlemen like manufacturers. This growing shift will continue to affect the economy and will likely have big implications on large retailers. It is a special time in history that will have a transformative impact on our future. – Huffington Post

You might have heard about the Maker movement, a grassroots movement based on the emergence of consumer-level tools for design and manufacturing. It’s reported that 135 million Americans are makers, which is nearly half the population. The maker manifesto calls for making, sharing, giving, and learning. It’s making a difference. MakerFaires are popping up everywhere, and there are other maker-inspired communities and events, as well:

Craft nights are replacing book clubs. Libraries and museums are being turned into “Makerspaces,” physical locations where people can come together to make. The sale of sewing kits in Walmart stores has recently gone up 30 percent. And just last year, someone created Christmas cookies using a 3D printer. – Huffington Post

This has become a major economic phenomenon because of a perfect storm of conditions:

  • Access to increasingly sophisticated tools to create, like 3-D printers.
  • The ability to find inspiration online.
  • Crowdfunding to make your idea reality.
  • Online marketplaces and social channels to get feedback and distribute creations.
  • Inexpensive and effective tools for branding, marketing, and promotion.
  • Learning opportunities provided by other creators.

Boosting Your Creativity and Learning DIY Skills

Albert Einstein said that creativity is intelligence having fun. At Connect2Classes, we are committed to helping our learners explore their creative potential. Creative businesses can be some of the most fulfilling, as well as being lucrative in a world of people looking for unique and one-of-a-kind items. We’d love to hear about how your creative endeavors affect your life – please comment!
