Here’s a simple challenge to anyone who organizes an event and asks for evaluations.
(You do ask for evaluations, don’t you? Here’s how to get great event evaluation response rates.)
Publish your complete, anonymized evaluations.
You may want to restrict access to the people who attended the event.
That would be good.
You may decide to publish your evaluations publicly, as we just did for EventCamp East Coast 2011, and as we did a year ago for EventCamp East Coast 2010.
That’s even better.
That’s my challenge to anyone who organizes an event.
If you believe in your event, and want to make it better, why not be transparent about the good, the bad, and the ugly?
