 I think the format of the presentation was excellent. Having several different speakers present for a limited period of time is very refreshing. —Gregory C.

I thought they did an excellent job. I liked how they took turns speaking. Because it was a long webinar, It made it easier to listen to two people switching off than one person speaking for the entire time. —Krista M.
