The following questions will provide some demographic data which will help us improve the EO Forum experience. If you are an outside facilitator or cannot answer some of these questions, please just leave them blank. These answers will only be used to correlate aggregated survey data (e.g., is there a correlation between Forum size and attendance?).

PLEASE NOTE: Forum groups who have held less than five Forum meetings may not find this survey useful.

8. PRESENTATIONS: Q & A Section
  1= We often interrogate our presenters, sometimes with disguised advice, for over 10 minutes, sometimes as long as 30-40 minutes
  10= We ask very few questions, spending 5 – 10 minutes or less, ONLY asking questions to determine which experiences would be most appropriate to share
9. PRESENTATIONS: Speaking from Experience
