I worked at a well known chemical company where they have a department full of doctors. Not medical doctors, PhD type ones. All very clever and technical who spend their Days looking down xxxx scopes and doing clever things on their computers.
They are expected to go to conferences and seminars and bring it work.
I was expecting the worst so was pleasantly surprised when most of them were keen to learn. I say most as on any training seminar there are 3 types of delegates
• The enthusiastic learner
• The holiday maker ( i.e. the one who would rather relax at the back of the room than actually do any work!)
• The prisoner (i.e. The person who is “sent” whether he or she likes it or not)
We had the usual mix on the day!
