About This Workshop

You will need a paid subscription to ChatGPT for this workshop. See the "Preparation" section below for more details.

This seven-hour workshop gives you the context and hands-on practice you need to effectively use AI to automate your workflows and optimize communications.

To kick it off, we’ll talk about the importance of learning AI — regardless of your role or industry — and best practices for recognizing and mitigating bias when using large language models (LLMs).

Next, you’ll get your hands dirty in ChatGPT developing and testing prompts, and generating summaries of large, complex content. Then learn to identify the key steps involved in designing an automation, and determine which of your own mundane tasks can be easily automated using AI.

To round-out your AI skills, you’ll develop and implement a simple Generative AI solution to a real-world business problem. By the end of this workshop, you’ll have the generative AI tools and techniques under your belt to improve your productivity at work — and even carry some of these skills over to improve productivity in your personal life.

Please Note: Registration for this workshop will close 48 hours before the scheduled start date.

Takeaways

  • Analyze the impact of Generative AI on various industries and business functions.
  • Examine the strengths of AI — like automation and augmentation — and learn best practices to mitigate limitations around reasoning, awareness, and biases.
  • Develop and test different prompting strategies to improve the results of Generative AI models.
  • Apply techniques to generate accurate and concise summaries of long or complex content.
  • Identify the key steps involved in designing an automation, and apply the principles of automation design to a real-world business process.
  • Develop and implement a simple Generative AI solution to a real-world business problem.

Preparation

  • You’ll need access to one of these "Pro" LLMs:

  • No prior knowledge of generative AI is necessary.
