BILT Asia 2018 Speaker Feedback

Hello everyone,

Happy sunny and warm Friday, if you are living in the UK.

Allow me to share with you some feedback I received from attendees of my session at BILT Asia 2018 held in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore on the 7th of April 2018.

Session number: 3.1

Topic: Structural Data Mining using Revit-Dynamo-PowerBI Workflow

How would you rate this speaker (*Average Speaker Score): 2.69

How do you rate the quality of the speaker materials (*Average Class Material Score): 2.50

Number of responses: 16

A selection of comments:

  • Well presented and structured presentation.
  • Suggest you have some or all of the schedules prepared for when you present in Australia. You can touch on the important things such as the blank line causes null.
  • Great explanations. Very clear.
  • Could have helped to just breeze through the scheduling part and focus more on Dynamo and Power BI as most of us would have been familiar. But great effort. Super detailed.
  • Obviously knowledgeable. A little slow moving, but good teaching.
  • Great topic. I wanted more Power BI, less Dynamo.
  • The handout is useful and easy to understand.

    *Attendees rated speakers as follows:
    3 = Excellent, 2 = Good, 1 = Average, 0 = Poor

If you happened to be one of the attendees in my session, your feedback will be highly appreciated and thank you for your support. I hope you learned something new which you can apply in your own discipline.

Have a wonderful day.

Cheers,

Ahh, what a fantastic day!

Ahh, what a fantastic day!

Last night, after our BILT Asia 2018 welcome function, where I consumed 4 tall glasses of beers (I don’t think it measured a pint per tall glass), I received an email from the ICE confirming that I have passed my Technician Professional Review. I thought I was just drunk, but after carefully examining the email from the ICE, I can confirm that it was a legit email and I am now officially a Technician Member of the ICE (well I must pay this year’s membership first, which I did few minutes ago). This is another key milestone in my career. I am very grateful to everyone who supported (Lead Sponsor Rebecca Archer and my Secondary Sponsor Alex Baalham) and believed (my family of course as my very first supporter) in me on this journey. No words can summarise how I feel right now. The hard work of staying late to complete the application form and carefully selecting the appendices to support the application has now been paid off!

If you are a Technician and looking to be a Technician Member of the ICE, don’t be a procrastinator! If you feel you have enough evidence to demonstrate your competences, go for it.

Here is the link to know more about how to become a member:

Good luck for those who will be sitting soon for Technician Professional Review.

More beers tomorrow at Sentosa Singapore after the 2nd day of our BILT Asia 2018 Conference.

Cheers!

Finally arrived in Singapore for BILT Asia 2018 Conference

After for almost 20 hours of flight from London Heathrow Airport to Singapore Airport, we [because I brought my family with me for them to have their holiday while I’m in the conference] arrived sound and safe. Thank you for all our prayer warriors in making our trip safe.

Dealing with the Immigration officer was straight forward. We rented a taxi who delivered us from Singapore Airport to our rented hotel. Whilst on the road, I fell in love with the beauty of Singapore. We did not even encounter any traffic on the road (I should have taken some photos for you to see how beautiful is it travelling on their main highway).

Here are some photos I’ve taken so far:

Then I’ve meet some of my fellow speakers in the event and, just like me, most of them are also first time in engaging into public speaking. I believe we will all be fine in delivering our respective sessions.

 

Looking forward to learn something new in this event.

Have a great day.

Cheers.

Happy Easter!

May the blessings of the Lord guide you, protect you and be with you, in yours today and always. We wish you a blessed Happy Easter.

In Domino,
