This is a question Training courses, seminars and conferences

Inspirational or a waste of precious slacking-off time? I once went on a buzzword bingo-laden training course which ended up with my being held at gunpoint in public. Could have gone better, to be honest. Tell us your tales from either side of the lectern

Presentation training course led by an utter twat
I went to a training course about how to succeed when giving a presentation, improving confidence etc.

After an hour of various tips and advice, the professor guy running the lecture brought in 3 volunteers from his company to give example presentations that they'd had to prepare.

As the first guy was setting up, the professor told us all that we'd be seeing an example of a great presentation, an average presentation and a poor one, and we'd have to write on some sheet which we thought was which.

You instantly saw the one girl's face drop as the first guy up started speaking.

When it came to her turn, she was all over the place. It was awful and an error message even popped up half-way through the presentation and she had to restart it and skip to the correct slide. Complete cringefest all the way through and everyone in the room really felt for her.

I just love that he'd specifically picked her out for being crap.

and the 'good' one as shit. Cos I'm nice like that.
