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

One of my Dad's rare croissant moments
My Dad is pretty much a teddy bear in his family life, and as he gets closer to retirement he is looking ever-increasingly like Santa Claus, but he does tell the odd tale about his working life that reveals a different side of him.

Back in the...probably early nineties, he was sent on a training course run by some young and dynamic consultants freshly graduated from the School of Shiny Wankery, who were very in-your-face and fake-cheerful in the manner that was subsequently to be adopted by chuggers, and were laid on at great expense by the company.

The theme of the training course was "how can we improve [some internal process here]?", and the girl giving the training for my Dad's group started off by asking "So, does anyone have any ideas on how we can improve this process?". My Dad replied "Yes; my fees are £750 a day."
