Training Vows

When people invest time and money to sit in a session and watch you speak, you’ve made a commitment to them.  Perhaps, prior to agreeing to present, there should be some sort of vow of commitment to the learners.  Nothing too complex, perhaps something like this…

to have and to hold thy attention,

‘til final evaluation do us part,

according to sound adult learning principles,

and thereto I pledge thee my partner in learning.
