Feedback, PASS, Speaking, Training
This week is the week that hopeful presenters for the 2012 PASS Summit will be notified if they have been selected or not. We should all know by this Friday if we have been chosen to speak, to be an alternate, or just flat out denied, like I was last year. That is OK though I am not giving up, as is evidence by me submitting again this year. I am not sure if I will be chosen this year or not. I have not had a ton of speaking experience, just three SQL Saturdays, but I am hopeful. I have had full rooms each of the three times that I have presented and have received mostly good feedback. The only not so positive feedback that I have received is that I was too monotone during the presentation. Here are some of the feedback that I have received on my speakerrate site.
“Great intro to Powershell. I just started reading up on it the week before SQLSat47 and this was a big help. It was my favorite session of the day.”

“Colin’s presentation and content at SQL Saturday Phoenix was very well organized and interesting. He has an engaging style. I thought he’d been doing this for years until he said it was his first time teaching. Highly recommended!”
I appreciate the comments and I hope that based on feedback like this that the PASS Committee will give me a chance. We shall see and I will let you know.
