Such a Lovely Day

Not all conferences live up to expectations. But don't let that ruin your day.

What about other attendees?

@Noreen,

Did you check with other attendees to see if they felt the same discomfort and dissapointment like you did? If this is the case, that presenter will soon be "out of business" or will have to change his domain of expertise.

@cyril,

"How many times have I had this experience at a conference! Nice perspective"

Unfortunately, you can't get your money or your time back if it happens that you don't like the conference.

Dull presentation syndrome

..

There are dull presentations of interesting material, and then there are really dull presentations of really boring material.  I usually sit through the former, trying to glean something useful, but in the latter, I deploy self-ejection through ambulation...

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
