A week or so ago I received the feedback from the evaluation forms submitted by attendees at my session at the 2006 WritersUA Conference in Palm Springs. Considering there were about 50 speakers – many of whom are world-renowned in our field – I did good!
My average scores for this session (where 5 is the BEST), and my ranking against all speakers over all sessions were:
- Presentation Skills 4.64; rank: 14th
- Subject Knowledge 4.95; rank: 4th
- Quality of Session Information 4.77; rank: 5th
- Quality of Session Slides/Handouts 4.55; rank: 12th
