Excellent realistic presentation and interaction. Thought-provoking. Our Seniors loved it! The presentation came over as factual,informational and entertaining. Appropriate for engaging our assisted living residents.

Without a doubt - this is the BEST video conference I have ever done. Extremely interactive and well-organized.
