We’ve been analysing the feedback from the first Virtual Working Summit earlier this month. The feedback speaks for itself and we’re feeling really chuffed…
Thank you to all the speakers for their insights, to the audio engineer (magician?) from New Zealand who reduced all hiss, to Steve and his team producing the CDs, to Kenton and his team for their design, to Malcolm for his WordPress expertise for the Summit website, to Jon who stayed up late each night to switch over the playback by phone, to those who provided the systems which played back the interviews over the web and a massive thank you to the hundreds of people from more than fifty countries who took part, bought CDs and gave feedback. Thank you!
Here’s what people said, as entered into our survey:
The Virtual Working Summit was a wonderful learning and networking experience.
The speakers were so very knowledgeable. I looked forward each day to listening to the sessions! The summit was an excellent way to learn and connect with other professionals in a convenient and flexible way. Thank you Penny for a great program.
Hard to think of what could make this experience better. Penny’s efforts were outstanding and this summit was more than what I expected.
To be honest, I can’t think of anything to improve for next year! I thought the summit was extremely well organised and the different sessions covered the topic very well. Thank you!
a great start – looking forward to the next one
The summit sessions were excellent. All topics are relevant. For next year, continue to do a great job on selected relevant topics
Great summit sessions !! Speakers are knowledgeable on the topics which makes the session valuable
Excellent concept Penny, and executed perfectly. A significant contribution to raising the profile of virtual working and use of applicable tools. Looking forward to next year already! Dr. Edward Wallington, Programme and Project Manager
Thank you for an engaging set of discussions. John Greenwood PMP. Senior Project Manager.
What went well? Pretty much everything!
Thank you for hosting the Summit. I enjoyed it very much. Carl Sands, PMP – Global Delivery Framework Implementation Team Associate
Excellent idea please make it an annual event. Simon Neale – Project Manager
I liked everyone
All the calls I listened to were good. I only didn’t listen to calls if I physically couldn’t make time to listen that day – I would have listened to them all if I could. Very interesting, well co-ordinated and smoothly executed, thank you! Dee Henderson-Small, Consulting Partner, Inspired Partners Ltd.
The summit was brilliant idea! Hugely useful and encouraging to be able to hear experts on subjects that affect my virtual daily working life. Thank you Penny for organising it all. Peter Sargent, Financial Management Consultant
I liked the speakers – good topics and good coverage of the topics by the speakers. Connie Hayes, PMI-SP
Good event – stimulating idea.
The topics was just what we needed, because we have just started to Work in a new virtual organisation with 17 countries. What went well? The good questions and answers. That the summit was available the whole day and not just the specific time. Jeanette Prang, Learning and Change management consultant
I thought the telephone interviews were very professional, sound quality was excellent and good to be able to listen at any time. A great idea, wonderfully implemented. Carol Sherriff, director and facilitator, Wilson Sherriff
Audio format combined with LinkedIn discussions. Interview topics, practical advice.
I enjoyed ALL of the topics that were presented. I liked the fact that I could dial in at my own convenience. I actually heard my question asked during the summit so I thought that was very cool. I liked that the speakers were from a variety of countries and expertise, but it all tied in together nicely. Penny, this was a fantastic experience for me. Thank you for pulling all of the resources together and for offering us such a fantastic and FREE summit. I am already looking forward to participating next year and hope that since I registered I will be automatically on your email list for notices of same. THANKS SO MUCH! Cheryl D. Oberg, PMP [USA]
