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

Been in this game too long....
In my many years working as an event AV tech I have:

Made Tony Hadley look like a c**t
Witnessed Jo Brand being introduced as "Jo Bland"
Had to apologise to Richard Branson for not being allowed to play his VHS tape for technical reasons
Heard Tony Blair have a piss via headphones on a radio mic receiver
Realised that Alistair Stewart is a massive c**k
Discovered that Celebrities' PA's are usually much more full of their own self-importance than celebrities themselves
Started fantasizing about putting pictures of naked ladies into peoples presentations due to sheer boredom
Decided that the next time someone asks me to play 'Simply the Best' or anything by M-People to get the delegates 'enthused' then, thats it. I've had enough. Boobs in powerpoint time!

Alistair Stewart.

I'm related to him. He's a self important dick of epic proportions.

I'm giving you a sympathy click
for all the years I have likewise spent cursing dick-head speakers who have ignored the instructions I have given them JUST before they go onstage.
(Eg: "Please DON'T bang the lectern mic, it WILL work when you go to speak". The dick-head will then stride up to the lectern and as the applause is dying away, tap the lectern mic. Of course, I know he's going to do it, I can see his hands moving to it, so have left it muted. The applause dies, but rather than starting his speech, the dick-head is looking around wildly, 747 in his hand, banging the top of it, saying "Is this working? This isn't working!" On occasion, I've had to send a runner up to the stage to tell the dick-head that it WILL work when he puts the fucking thing down and starts his speech, just like I TOLD HIM EARLIER...! Jesus...)
