This presentation lacked polish and they referred to the slideshow without verbally communicating the content. As I have watched it as a video and could not see what was written on them.

Very informative and interesting. I think we may have more missed more detailed slides which would have been beneficial. Presenter was clear and concise.

Great refresher with clear and concise information. Good key points to assist and prevent poor detrimental documentation. Excellent presenter except for not being able to see the actual slides she was referring to.
