I give up.  I keep taking feedback from previous conferences and
incorporate them into my future presentations, and I still can't get
them right.  I was "slow", well, the last few times I was "too fast".  I
took the time to make sure everyone got the point for each page of my
presentation, and I get dinged for it!  I had addressed most of the
comments during my presentation, and I still got dinged on them.
Did anyone else get "great" feedback from presenting at IOUG????
I just can't see myself spending all that time working on anymore
Perhaps, I'll skip the mowing tonight and go straight to the drinking

Dear Chris Grabowy,


Thank you for speaking in Denver at COLLABORATE 08 - IOUG Forum and for
generously sharing your time and expertise!


It is through the quality content provided by our speakers that
COLLABORATE attendees increase their knowledge, their skills and their
network.  Needless to say, you greatly contributed to the success of our
conference and presentations, such as yours, are what make COLLABORATE
the premier learning experience that it is! 


Currently, we are in the process of putting all conference proceedings
into our LoOk (Library of Oracle Knowledge) member area.  If you made
any changes to your paper or presentation after you uploaded it, please
send the updated version to speakers@xxxxxxxxx  We want to ensure that
we have the final version.  


Please find the results of your session evaluations below.  The overall
mean at COLLABORATE 08 - IOUG Forum was 3.48.  That puts the majority of
sessions into the Very Good to Excellent rankings.


Thanks again for your continued support of the IOUG; please look for the
Call for Speakers notification in late August.  We look forward to
seeing you in Orlando, Florida for COLLABORATE 09 from May 3-7, 2009!

Written Commentary: 


* A walk-through of how Chris built the Wiki for his team.  Screen shots
would have been good.

* Lessons learned were very helpful!  Thank you!

* Opening could be shortened, defining a wiki needed less time.  Spend a
little more time on why you selected a particular Wiki.  Do a bit more
research... OSX Server has a Wiki built-in for example.  Info on hosted
Wikis was very helpful. ie: exit strategy

* Slow
