WOW! Powerful! Great!. . . Excellent! This was the best session I took all week ... I appreciated the presenter speaking from her own experience rather than just making an academic presentation. Would like this to last at least one full day ... Bring her back next year for a longer presentation! . . . An excellent presenter. impressive, informative and enlightening ... Thanks for the variety, pacing, chance to interact with the learning process. You are clear, and easy to follow. I left feeling rejuvenated instead of exhausted!
