Q & A Time

An informal academic or research meeting for the purpose of finding areas of mutual interest is a

  1. Buzz session
  2. Fishbowl
  3. Colloquium
  4. Workshop


The answer is c. Colloquium. Today’s participants want to take an active role in their own learning and all of the above options are formats to follow for programs that include audience participation.


When Americans enter a room, which direction will they normally go?

  1. Right
  2. Left
  3. Either way, no way is more dominate


The answer is a. Right. Most Americans will automatically go right when entering a room. The value to this relates to placement and layout of the room. If there is something that you want people to see or do first, place it to the right. If it is of lesser importance, place it to the left or at the end.


I just want to say THANK YOU for everything. I thought the meetings went really well, the guests seemed to enjoy their rooms and stay, the food was fabulous, and we were well taken care of if we needed something. We didn’t have to want or wait on anything!! I have to admit I was very impressed!

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and for taking such good care of the team, coaches, and support staff this past weekend. The trip went very smooth and the team had their first victory over Millikin in 40+ years!
