This was not what I expected the course to be, internally we had been offered a facilitating course, but regardless I picked up some useful techniques and ways to consider meetings so it did achieve some of what I was after.
Re the course materials, whilst they covered the topics on the agenda there were a couple of typos in the materials (paper and presentations) that could be corrected.Response from course provider
: Thank you for the feedback, Geoff. Yes, there appears to have been a breakdown in communication as to what was expected of this course. We have highlighted this to the course organiser. Apologies for the typos, we will look into that immediately!
