If you were from the northern climates, Tuscon's temperatures were wonderful. If you were from the southern climes, perhaps it seemed a bit cool. But no matter where you were from, everyone agreed that CickerExpo was hot. How hot? 100% of attendees who turned in feedback forms wrote that ClickerExpo either "Met Expectations," "Exceeded Expectations," or was a "Wow Experience." Which response was most often cited? "Wow!" Second most popular? "Exceeded Expectations." Here's what else they had to say:
- "The quality of staff and organization are outstanding"
- "I need to come back!"
- "Fabulous accessible experts and attendees"
- "Learning labs were great, nothing beats hands-on. Also they were low pressure and made me willing to participate"
- "One of the best learning experiences of my life"
- "Advance trainer material.. Just great.. I am one and it was just as I had hoped"
- "Best seminar I've ever attended (easy to understand and well organized)"
- "Loved being coached in the labs"
- "Every single session I attended was fantastic"
We're getting ready to do it again in 45 days(!) beginning March 31 at ClickerExpo in Newport Rhode Island. As a special treat, we've flown in one of the most entertaining dog and handler teams in the globe to perform at lunch. It's hard to describe the performances of Attila Skuzalek and his dog Fly. So go take a look. Honestly, the new daily routine alone is worth the price of admission. Registration information For novice pet owners to experienced trainers and from veterinarians to zoo keepers, ClickerExpo delivers a highly relevant and engaging learning experience through a curriculum of 50 multimedia sessions and hands-on learning labs. Finally, a gigantic thank you to everyone who attended ClickerExpo in Tucson. The Expo attendees were incredibly enthusiastic about their learning and generous with their feedback. Speaking on behalf of the entire ClickerExpo faculty, it was a pleasure teaching and talking with you for three days. And thanks for all the wonderful feedback on various "clicker related" lists. While it may be true that "you can't please all the people, all the time," at ClickerExpo we've come pretty close. Aaron
