Hi Marthie,

Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you found the tips useful.

I did look at your website...very attractive and a clever way of packaging your programs.

Hi thanks for all the tips. I'm currently planning to take up presentation skills workshops. I reviewed this site http://www.ripestuff.com and I think it's kinda cool. If you have more ideas I'd appreciate them.

Hi Joel,

Thanks for visiting. Yes, I agree that it's a good idea to allow people the freedom to comment from whatever perspective they choose, because you're absolutely right that they may have things in mind that you didn't or wouldn't have thought of. However, I think the things being described in the feedback (the details)need to be specific (rather than general) to be of developmental use to the presenter.

>>Demand specificity.<<

I usually give people who attend a workshop a 3x3" PostIt and ask them to write comments...without specificity. I find that they sometimes have things in mind that I didn't.
