    Very good information and realistic examples. I had to laugh a little, it's like she's yelling at everyone during the entire lecture. Very passionate though! Just for future conferences and videos, if you could remind the speakers to repeat the questions, that will help tremendously!

    I highly recommend this presentation. Along with Shari's presentation on posture it is excellent.
