I struggled somewhat with the first half of this workshop. I thought the guest speaker was less relevant to me being in the private sector and it felt like a pitch for a product I wasn't interested in. I was keen to get some input on what a good CSR policy looks like and although I understand the relevance of 'impact' it didn't resonate and I felt we spent too much time on something that was very ideological and out of reach for most of us. I am looking forward to the next workshop on the 'how to'!
One of the best training sessions I have attended in a while. Rachael was really good at getting everyone involved in discussions and the breakout rooms and little tasks were a good way to keep things interactive. Much better than being talked at all day! It was nice to hear other attendees experiences with minute taking, especially as we could all take things from each other as well as the course itself.
