Very engaging. I was however, interested in knowing that if a laser pointer was being used, it would be handy to know where it was being directed (ie if at the slide presentation) because in this presentation, it was difficult to tell if it was moving the slide onto the next screen or you were pointing to some information that we could not see from our perspective. Other than that - excellent, I took quite a bit of information away from this. Thank you :)
