Next week, I will be taking part in a Google Apps for Education training event. The target training group- school administrators.
So I decided to warm-up, and get a feel for the content and the delivery. I thought, “who is the toughest audience to win over?”. I decided if I could impress and win over a really tough audience or individual participant, then I could declare my training strategy a success.
So, I conducted the beta-training, and then asked the single participant to give me some feedback on some of the key concepts and themes. Here is what he said:
Obviously, there is some fine-tuning to do. I am confident I can workout the problems before this project is out of beta and into the classroom. Grumpy Cat is a “tough crowd”,
I actually thought it would be worse.
“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
