“ Seems helpful from this first event. I would not want the feedback on the event to be shared with all attendees, as it could discourage certain types of comments, or if there were a negative comment, it could color the impressions of those who thought favorably of the event and of the presenter. Also, I as an attendee am not really interested in seeing these comments, and it just creates more mail in my inbox. If all 25 attendees respond, that's 24 emails (excluding me). I would tend to stop opening SoJust emails bc so many would be irrelevant. ”

“ What great leadership, and what an innovative, cool organization. At the Time Management Skillshare, the 30 minutes of designated, pre-event socializing was slightly tough for me, and I'm a gregarious person! Being 100% new to the group and feeling that others already knew each other, it was difficult for me to "break in" socially.
