Training Course and Business Conference Technology

When a new technology comes out, it's described as "leading edge" - it tends to be very expensive, and whilst it functions it does so with limitations that make its adoption limited - by only those people who really need the technology and / or are prepared to put up with its restrictions. When I was first on line in 1994, that was very much the case - dialling in to a bank of modems on a long distance phone call, waiting for the evening to do so, and running email exchange programs to keep my connect time down. There were periods, as the uptake got bigger and the modem banks failed to keep pace, that I could be redialling for half an hour to get online ... and then as just 9.6k.

Moving on beyond leading edge, we got to general adoption, and we're now in a state of general adoption - at the Salisbury RailFuture conference on Saturday, there's just a small proportion of member who are not online and they are being gently chided for not being there!

The same thing has happened with computer screen projectors. Our first, two thousand pound model, had a light level of 700 lumens and needed a carefully lit room for its use. Termed portable, it was more "luggable" than portable. But each generation has become lower cost and higher powered - both in terms of lumen, and in terms of resolution.

3500 lumen projector / Well House ManorHere's our new projector in use - I wook it to the Salisbury event to project my talk, and it was used by others too through the day. Some 100 people attended and the unit gave crisp, bright pictures that they all could see. One or two speakers of "the old guard" didn't use slides, but for everyone else their powerpoint slides were clearly visible to the whole audience. Truely, general adoption has now come to this technology too.

For smaller courses, this new projector is almost TOO bright, and we'll continue to use the 2500 lumen unit in "The Berks" at Well House Manor. For larger course in "The Wilts", which can seat up to 50 theatre style (but we limit courses to 8!), we'll use the new 3500 lumen unit. Both rooms also have wired and wireless internet access.

If you're looking to book a training event, business meeting or presentation room in Melksham, please consider Well House Manor. A projector and the internet connection will be available for you to use - together with one of our laptops (or indeed several laptops if you're doing a course). "The Berks" has a complete white wall which you can use as both a projector screen and a whiteboard, and no less than half of the walls in "The Wilts" are so treated.

We have all the usual facilities you would look for at a business conference too - a variety of catering options, plenty of parking, copying and printing facilities - and we also have "the best bedrooms in Melksham" according to some or our reviewers - and who are we to disagree?


Your Contact for events - Christine Sivier. If you email our general enquiry address - info@wellho.net Christine will get an automatic copy, or if she's busy running a conference our office can get straight back to you instead. Or phone Well House Manor on 01225 709638, or drop in and see us at 48, Spa Road, Melksham - that's the big building set back in 3/4 of an acrea of grounds just a couple of hundred yards from the town centre.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
