    So interesting to look at the marketing and food industry aspect of nutrition and I loved Amy’s presenting style

    Keep politics out

    Excellent presentation full of useful information and engagingly presented. I loved her dry sense of humour (which I hope didn't mean her messages would be lost on some of the audience). I wish the presentation could have been longer so that she could have gone into detail about each of the points she was making. Copies of the slides would be useful and appreciated.
