Default Enrichment lecturer wants feedback.

My name is Lisa and I lecture for both Celebrity and Holland America. To those of you who have attended my lectures on Pirates, Bucanneers, History of Madams in America, Maya Civilization, the Baja, History of Panama, and several others, would you be so kind as to comment on the lectures?
Since the comments of the guests on a cruise determine whether a lecturer is invited back onboard, I want to be sure I am giving the best possible presentations re; interesting topics, lively presenting technique and most of all... information that informs, educates and occasionally amuses.
Thanks,
Lisa[/b]

Lisa,
My advice to you is to pass out quick and easy anonymous surveys to the attendees of your lectures. I run a consulting and training business and all of the students are given surveys to complete at the end of class and in most cases they appreciate the fact that the instructor cares enough to ask for their feedback. It is also an invaluable tool when dealing with decision makers, it shows that you have a proven track record of successful performances and they're much more likely to ask you back. I would be lost without surveys. In some cases if we don't get good reviews, we don't get paid. It really helps you perfect your craft.

[quote="beenie weenie"]Lisa,
What a great idea. Thanks for sharing it. I will go on the next cruise prepared with just such a comment card.
At the end of a cruise, cruise lines used to pass out such cards and they contained a specific space for guests to comment on the enrichment lecturers. These were then sent to the heads of the enrichment programs at coporate.
Now, we are at the "mercy" of the cruise director and if their evaluation is not 100%, "you're out of there", even if the 800 seat theater was filled for every presentation.
That's what happened to me, so I know! Under the old system, the guests were kind enough to give me rave reviews and big # for coporate to see. But, recently, for some unknown reason, a cruise director trashed me. Thank heavens two other lines continue to seek my services.
Lisa

Also, don't forget the power of the comment card! Encourage your guests to be sure to mention how much they enjoyed your lecture when completing the cruise line survey at the end of their cruise. That is a sure fire way to get corporate attention.
