Conference Attendee Comments to "What did you like best?"

Absolutely recommend it!! Great metaphors, I really enjoyed your energy and your presentation style. You provided us with tools we can REALLY use and some techniques for implementing. It was GREAT!!

The ways to use information immediately - not just a boring lecture that I have heard before.

A lot of fun.

I received information I can use immediately. Great ideas to get audience involved.

Getting people to relax and look at their situation and themselves in a humorous way.

Interesting and fun. Very enjoyable & a wonderful presentation concept.

Thought provoking. You should be one of the keynotes for a longer session.

I like that I have a piece that I can actually take back to work and implement!

Sense of humor, audience involvement, energy in the presentation, quotes and overheads. Excellent Session! Thanks.

His energy, his quotes and his training aids. This was great and wish it was longer. Do it in Chicago next year!

Very useful ideas that I can incorporate in our organization.

The style of the presentation was excellent!

Good thought-provoking ideas - no lecture. But it should be longer - at least a 2-hour session!!

...informative and well-presented. The examples and overheads were excellent.

The presentation was exciting and filled with energy. Needed more time.

Practical application - tools for immediate use.

I liked it all. I did NOT get bored or lose interest.

Great quotes! Use of overheads versus "hi tech", powerpoint, etc. Fun to use "old-fashioned" stuff. Use of metaphors and cartoons to illustrate behavior.
