Thanks @Ade, it's good to know that my forced COVID retirement might eventually be over and I can just be semi-retired!Ah, well said @Seat0B. I would pay top $ to attend a face to face training. The whole online training thingy isn't working. I work in IT and the new age training courses are of better value when you get a chance to collaborate in person with the fellow participants. Doing this online is very draining on the enthusiasm, productivity and the whole idea of collaboration, working together isn't happening.
The other issue is, trying to get everyone up to speed on how to use the IT systems to collaborate. There is issues with some using Windows, some using Mac, some use phones to dial into training sessions because their laptop is not picking up audio via their headphones, some don't have and don't want to use headphones and you can hear their family business during the training sessions!
I really wish, at least, trainings will be done F2F, real soon. I have got $5K training budget (self funded, as always) that I need to use and I'm waiting to use it on a F2F training in CBR. Fingers crossed!
Your comments are exactly what my other clients are saying, as well as how I feel. So I have hope. And then if I earn some money, I won;t have to care what travel costs!
