So every summer I pack up and head to a conference for two days that fulfills a large portion of my requirements and I teach at another which fulfills even more. And every summer I come away with the same thoughts. These training sessions become more of a showcase of the presenter and how much he/she has done over providing substantive help and knowledge to those attending.
I appreciate it though because it helps me when I present. I make sure I provide the law and practical steps on how to apply what I am talking about. This is an hour of teaching after all, not an hour to discuss my career highlights. That's not to say all the presentations fall in this category, but a large number of them do and force attendees to walk away with no more knowledge than they began with.
