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

I was once sent on a time management course by my manager.
I thought it was just a waste of time but she assured me I wouldn't come back to a backlog of work and that it would be good for me to get out lf the office, have a free lunch and generally skive off.
So I turned up at the training centre about ten minutes early, to be told that all but two of the other people booked onto the course had cancelled. Over the next half hour those two people cancelled also, because they'd managed to miss their train so would end up a couple of hours late to a day long course.
I learned a valuable lesson about time management -- don't waste your time on bollocks courses.

I was late to a time management course too.
It sounds so much like a bad joke that I wasn't going to bother to share it.

I think if I got sent on a time management course
I'd almost certainly HAVE to turn up either late or stupidly early.

I know this wasn't really funny or anything.
It was so stupid though that I felt I needed to share.
