"You reinforced some very necessary perspectives without beating anyone over the head. Your subtle and laughable message made them take notice. You were well prepared, knew your material and kept everyone involved, which only adds to your professionalism as a speaker! The audience wanted to listen so they wouldn’t miss anything you had to say. In fact, when under stress, we all still keep reminding each other of your words."
