Managing uncommon situations Jul 16, 2010

Since we haven't heard a lot, because of technical problems, I can't really comment the course details.

I'd like to thank to Leslie, how he was able to manage this uncommon situation. This was my 2nd webinar, I'm not sure, if problems like yesterday, happen often or not. (Honestly, I think, because of the embarrassment of Leslie, this is an uncommon issue).
Maybe I'd have waited a bit less, before announcing that the course will be interrupted, maybe not. We all work with computers, and know well, that those problems are not easy to handle.
Anyway, I'm not demoralized, it was a kind of best practice in handling this situation.
Thank you, Leslie, thanks proz, *hear* you soon!icon_smile.gif

I would like this course to rescheduled, if possible Jul 16, 2010

It was a shame that the voice connection broke during the session. If it could be rscheduled, I would be delighted.

Course to be rescheduled Jul 16, 2010

Unfortunately we did have technical issues. The internet connection on Paul's end was unstable and we lost audio and visual a few times. Thanks for being understanding and patient.

We will definitely reschedule this course and are targeting next Thursday at the same time. I hope to have that confirmed today and will inform all participants of the new time and send out the new registration details.

We try to ensure all webinars and online training is free from interruption, delays and technical glitches.

I will post to this thread when we have the confirmed rescheduling of this course.

Worth waiting for the repeat session Jul 30, 2010

I enjoyed all three of Paul's sessions. It was very nice of him to reschedule the 'Concise Writing' session that had to be suspended due to technical problems. I am very interested in doing subtitling for documentary films in the future but his tips have already been useful to me in my copywriting.

I really enjoyed the webinar, the sound-quality was excellent this second time around and the instructor was very knowledgeable and experienced. I wish I could attend a classroom course in Paris with this particular instructor.
