98 ASTD Comments
We've received Kevin Cope's "ASTD 2010 International Conference & Exposition Session Evaluation Summary Report" (that's a mouthful). The scores and feedback were once again outstanding - and we're going to prove it this year by posting the reports and all 101 comments (even the two comments that were not so positive) here on our blog. We've bolded some of our favorite comments and not-so-favorite comments. Keep in mind that these were hand written comments and ASTD converted them, so some of the comments might read a little funny.
P.S. If you're planning an executive retreat, a leadership summit, a sales conference… whatever… we'd love to be on your keynote shortlist. Give us a call today: 801-224-5444.

Great session. Great presenter!
Would have been better if we got the handout w/the slides I was taking dictation for most of the session.
Entertaining, in formatting, challenging session. Encouraged to learn more on the topic
This session was fairly disappointing. I think that Kevin knows some great information but presentation pace, etc. hampered the information. The pace is too fast in the number at slides, etc.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and for making the printouts useful and not just a copy of your slide deck.
Appreciated the presenter taking conceptual info & making it applicable
Outstanding – very effective in a short time
Present / describe as more relevant for “for profit org” consider – integrating a not for profit approach
