Will Donna have a walk-out?

A queue around the block at Donna's last workshopThat legendary doyenne of Torontorian Communication, Donna Papacosta, is taking me up on the challenge of letting her audience walk out on her.

As per my previous post on under-prepared presentations and the impact on the world if people had the freedom to walk out of atrocious presentations and presenters, Donna is going to announce to her audience from the very start of the Business Writing workshop she’s running on Monday that if she is failing to get through to them they are free to walk out.

Well, perhaps she wasn’t going to say it, but now that I’ve blogged about it here and thrown the gauntlet into the air, perhaps she will give her lucky audience the opportunity to vote with their feet.

She could always introduce it as a new development in the blogosphere amongst professional business communicators :-)

    At IABC conferences, lots of people vote with their feet. I once passed a door, saw the droves streaming out, and thought “wow, they finished early”… except, it was a vote.
