I’ve now received feedback for my session ‘Best practice business information technology’ presentation I gave to the Queensland Country Conference in Townsville on May 16 2008 (the second day of the conference). Again in the interests of honesty, integrity and transparency I’m posting the feedback. One of these days I’ll get some really negative feedback and the test then will be whether I post that :).
CPA Australia apparently aims for a rating of 4.2 (Very Good to Excellent). 43% of the attendees responded.
My overall rating was 4.20, with a ‘Technical Content’ rating of 4.20 and a ‘Presentation Material’ rating of 4.19. All ratings are out of 5.
Comments made were:
- The most beneficial session so far. Can relate to speaker & he addressed core business everyday issues. Very informative.
- Information on IT strategic plan was very useful.
- Very informative – great general technological advice along with specific planning procedures.
- Certainly offered a higher level of overview and advice on the topic. Which was very useful!
I’m pretty happy with that – particularly for the comment about ‘core business everyday issues’ – it can be very easy to fall into the trap of being too academic, so I work hard to give practical advice when I can (whilst still being robust).
By the way, here’s the Mercure Inn in Townsville – very nice and practical venue.
While we were there there was a special function for Army Veterans, I believe – the place was packed to the rafters with khaki and blokes with assertive voices. That probably shouldn’t be a surprise in Townsville, should it?
