This is another one of these experiences that I didn't dream of before. Video conefence training is an example of how the world is becoming smaller. As Thomas Friedman would say it the technologies, like the Internet and fiber optics that serves as the foundation for video conferencing, makes the world flatter.
When I graduated from college, I never imagined I was going to be training in an environment like this. You have LCD laptops, projector, foreign participants, and a world-class auditorium. It is light years away from the chalk, blackboard, undergraduates and an arcane wooden classroom that was available from my alma mater, where I wanted to start my teaching profession. That is why I call myself a trainer and not a teacher.
I am very grateful to celebrate my first year anniversary of being an I.T. Training Consultant at Asian Development Bank. This has been the greatest consolation that my former boss has given after he left the Philippines.
A unusual observation that my officemate mentioned while I was doing my presentation... My stomach is very slim while I present... I wish I could present more often, though it scares me that someone is making observations on my lower extremities during my presentation instead of my upper regions...
People have their opinions. They have the freedom to express them. The problem is that some opinions are baseless and serve as a scapegoat for their inadequacies. It's a cover-up of what the true story is. It is criminal to broadcast it to others who shouldn't need to hear it. Speaking with true conviction is very different from saying things that are harsh, unfair and without proper evidence.
