There were some serious issues at the beginning which caused quite the delay to the training actually starting. The course was a bit too basic for what we needed or already knew and actually some of the questions we asked we were advised to look it up and figure it out ourselves
Slow to get going but improved. Needed a better intro to explain the course purpose. Not enough decent substance and content. Breakout groups should have been mixed up so we could speak to different team members. Felt the course was stretched out and could have been completed well within one hour.
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.
I felt thos morning was useful but didn't fit with the training and should have been an away day. I felt the training element of the day was a but thin, and was a repeat of topics I have covered previously. No fault of the trainer, but I didn't feel I got much out of this.
