Good course, happy with Happy
The day started with a bit of a rough tumble but the tutor Bhupan quickly turned things around in a positive way. John also put the icing on the cake with the goodie bags and incentives to smooth things over. I really enjoyed my training today despite all the hiccups.
The pace of the course was far too slow - I was expecting and hoping to cover how to actually take minutes, and do some practical exercises in abbreviations and short hand and tips and tricks. Instead we spent what felt like the entire day talking about how important sitting next to the chair is and the agenda. This course didn’t provide what I was looking for. Additionally, and I acknowledge this was no one’s fault but our trainer was an hour late due to tube issues, and we were left waiting. They gave us food and 50% off but this meant the course started later than was expected and coupled with the slow pace, we barely made progress through the work book. I also felt like we were just reading through the workbook during the session, which we could’ve done in our own time. I appreciate and like Bhupan’s energy but this was not a good use of my time.
Was not sure if meals were Halal
Really enjoyed this course. Feel a lot more confident about minute taking. Ready to use my skills learnt today at my workplace
