All About Content

  • Did you learn something today you didn't know before?
  • How will you use the information you obtained?
  • Was the presentation too long, too short, or just right? How did you come to your conclusion?
  • Did anything I say confuse you?
  • On a scale of 1 to 10 for "easy to understand content," would you rate the presentation a high of 10? Please explain your choice.

All About Environment

  • Was the room temperature comfortable?
  • Could you hear the presentation with ease?
  • Do you prefer the table seating arrangement used today? What do you like or dislike about it?
  • Would you like more or less break time? Why?
  • If applicable: Did you find it easy to travel to this location?

All About Visual Aids

  • Were the slides (or specific visual aids) useful? In what way?
  • Did you have sufficient time to read or study them? If not, should I show fewer slides?
  • Should each slide contain more or less information?
  • Was the commentary accompanied slides distracting, and, if so, what suggestions can you make to improve the visual portion of the presentation?
  • Would the presentation have been as good or better without visual aids? Please explain why.

All About Me

  • Did I speak clearly, or did you miss hearing some of what I said?
  • Did I make you feel comfortable about asking questions or making comments?
  • I realize that an attendee spends a lot of time looking at the speaker, so I hope you don't mind if I ask: Do I look okay? Is there anything about my personal appearance I should change for the benefit of listeners?
  • Do you think I know my topic well? If not, what did I say, or not say, that makes you think so?
  • If you were trying to decide to attend another workshop and learned that I was the presenter, would that influence your decision? Please explain.

All About This and That

  • Do you think the admission fee is reasonable?
  • On a personal level: Did you have fun, and if not, why not?
  • You received the speaker's e-mail address. Will you use it?
  • Do you think the many illustrations the speaker used will help you remember information and how to use it?
  • What was the best thing about this presentation? What was the worst thing?

Don't forget to thank participants for giving you feedback.
