Interactive and engaging session with strong relevance to current challenges and practices.

I found the session very interesting, and I am applying your model to think outside the box, so very well done!

Let me first say that our group is a tough one and are very critical of speakers from the outside. HOWEVER, our group loved Adam’s talk. They felt it was relevant, to the point, and everyone could relate to what was covered. I received compliments on Adam all day.

Adam had excellent delivery and was very engaging. His talk was useful, interesting and thought-provoking. The Q&A session was valuable too.
