    This speaker is entertaining, holds your attention, and shares excellent science-based information that's easy to understand. (Note: The questions from the audience were inaudible and distracting.)

  • by Tambra Means on Jul 28, 2017

    This course was FANTASTIC! The delivery was fun, but precise on important points that I hoped it would cover. It delivered more knowledge and depth than I anticipated when I signed up.
