Make sure that you bring plenty of copies with you and ask people to leave it on a table as they leave.
Resist the temptation to look at the questionnaires until everyone has left.
Feedback is critical to the success of your next workshop as it will provide you with a clear idea of what
went well and any areas that may need some attention. However, be aware that you cannot please all of
the people all of the time and there is little you can do if one person’s feedback states that the workshop
wasn’t long enough while another thought it a bit too long!
Before reviewing the feedback questionnaires it is important that you sit down and go through in your
mind (or with a co-presenter) what you felt went well and what you feel you could have done better.
This is the best way for you to clear your head and switch off at the end of the workshop.
