Thoroughly enjoyed the video, although more information slides would have helped me to reinforce topical information. I am more a visual learner than an auditory learner. Thank you.

This video was a wonderfully informative and easily understood education session. If there was ever an opportunity to attend a day with the presenter I would most certainly have no hesitation in attending. Well edited and easy to watch, especially considering the potentially dry subject.
