I live in New Jersey No shade at my window and I was on the east of the hotel and sun came through at about 5:00am each morning. I informed the hotel about this several times throughout the day and at 10:00pm that night the maintenance person was in my room working on the shade. I found the registration process easy for the meeting overall Had some issues with the website. It would be helpful if there was a process to change your sessions at the event; in case you decided a change was necessary;;; I had a good experience with ground transportation to/from the hotel site Problems with transportation. Driver was not in place. Then his company wanted us to wait an hour or more while to goes in to look for someone or wait on their flight. In the future; please give more consideration to those traveling to smaller cities/airports. Taxi ride from Newark Penn Station was a nightmare. : (same as Eval forms): No Answer / Somewhat Somewhat Strongly Disagree Does not Average Agree Disagree Disagree apply 4 3 2 1 0 3 3 1 1 0 4.74 4 1 1 0 0 5.06 4 0 1 0 0 5.13 1 1 0 1 10 5.10 5 4 2 1 0 4.42 6 2 2 0 0 4.65 3 0 0 0 0 5.35 0 1 0 0 1 5.37 2 1 1 1 15 4.50 Feedback Scale: (same as Eval forms): Strongly Agree Agree 6 5 On the general sessions & overall activities: 1 I received adequate communication about the event prior to the meeting 19 11 2 I found the opening with the Presidents clear and informative 13 12 3 I enjoyed the reception on Tuesday evening 10 11 4 I found the morning general sessions valuable 8 19 5 I enjoyed the dinner & entertainment on Thursday evening 7 9 6 I found the speaker, Michael Friedman, clear and informative on Thursday 1 8 7 I participated in the Wellness pedometer challenge 4 4 8 I found the Mars University Gallery Walk clear and informative 4 15 9 I received adequate information and prework requirements prior to the meeting 9 17 10 The Welcome Packet information received at the event was useful 11 17 I found the opening with the Presidents clear and informative I enjoyed listening to their views. I was not present. I would have preferred to have had no message than a taped message. Paul Michael would come. I think that Americas P&O meeting is important enough to have his presentation. We really needed to hear from Bob Landis. Wished they could have been there live The learning objectives are unclear due to the extraordinary level and pace of change for this year. I don't believe that I will be able to do anything other to handle the change for my client group this year. I enjoyed the reception on Tuesday evening I was not present We had an ''extra'' session which prevented us from timely attendance at the reception - in the future; I will not let that happen!! I found the morning general sessions valuable I was not present I found the speaker, Michael Friedman, clear and informative on Thursday A bit too long for before dinner - appetizers may have helped! Although the speaker; Michael Friedman; was informative; I believe that power point presentations and breakout discussions should not happen during the dinner event; especially after a long day of that forum. Also; some of the information presented by Mustafa was actually heard by some 3 times. Bad timing Good information; but timing of the presentation was not optimal. He knew what he was talking about; but I didn't find the content that interesting considering we're mostly generalists. It was also too long considering it was before dinner. His topic was already covered in classes; so it was duplicated; not an interesting enough topic for a dinner event;;; I think it was the wrong time to have him speak. After having a long day of learnings; then having a couple of drinks it was not a good time to sit and listen to an hour lecture. The entertainment was good. It was a dry topic for a pre-dinner talk. The right person; right subject but at the wrong moment with not enough time. I do not reccomend mix fun moments with deep content. I found Michael Friedman very interesting although I think it was a dis-service to him to be placed on Thursday evening after a full day of courses and prior to dinner. There may have been more engagement by the attendees if he had been placed in a different presentation slot. I found the Mars University Gallery Walk clear and informative I wish I had personally taken more time to actually experience the walk and ask questions of the presenters. Was not able to participate due to extra ''sessions'' that I attended I thought this was a great addition to the conference. As a business we need to be aware of what Mars University as a whole is all about - the gallery walk went a long way in accomplishing this. The Welcome Packet information received at the event was useful There wasn't anything new or extraordinary in the packet - felt wasteful. : (same as Eval forms): No Answer / Somewhat Somewhat Strongly Disagree Does not Average Agree Disagree Disagree apply 4 3 2 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 5.58 3 1 1 0 1 5.17 2 1 0 0 7 5.25 3 0 0 0 1 5.17 8 2 0 0 5 4.81 6 9 1 2 4 3.74 0 0 3 2 18 4.00 6 0 1 0 3 4.81 3 2 0 0 0 5.06 1 0 2 0 0 5.13 On your learning: Yes Do you now have clear learning objectives for continued development in 2006? 28 Have you agreed your learning objectives with your line manager? 24 Have you started to implement learning actions from the P&O college programs you attended? 26 No 3 7 5 Please share any additional feedback for the team to consider at future P&O College offerings. Computer connection was not easy. The food at the dinner was great. Enjoyed it very much. Enjoyed the visit by Victoria. That was great. In order to have more time to discuss issues in the sessions; some of the work that was done in the sessions could have been pre-work and we could have spent time talking about more topics. If someone that is on the schedule to address the group does not; I think the group should be told that they will not be addressing the group. I think the organizers did a great job and overall I enjoyed the event. Hard work by all was evident;;; my congratulations to the team;;;and thanks for focusing on our development. Please repeat!! I enjoy the interaction with my peers for the different SBU's. I spent most of one day in a meeting room with no windows. The course allowed for no free time (including lunch). The content on most of the courses was excellent -- time very well spent. Would have appreciated more time to network. It was great that you included non-exempt participation with this event. Meeting rooms a bit dark - no windows! Overall very well organized and executed. Morristown is a difficult location for ''locals'' to get to; especially for an 8 am session. Traffic to that area is tremendous. Staying for the week is really not an option as our budgets have been cut. The focus on big presentations to the group; such as Thursday night; should be more focused on HR trends - not just one area like talent development - but more broad (much like our sessions; which covered a variety of topics). GREAT WORK to everyone involved in setting this event up!!! Congratulation the event was great! I appreciate all of the work that the organizers did to prepare this meeting. We need to have these more consistently to stay in tune with our corporate goals and to just align our strategies. Remote locations have become almost an island isolated from the rest of P&O over the last three years.
