ELLEN HENRY left a review Thursday, February 8, 2018

Talk was very interesting. It could have been much MORE interesting and more easily followable if it hadn't been such a struggle to figure out what part of the projected graphs, figures, etc. speaker was referring to. Perhaps due to oblique angle from podium, or...(?) the pointer was mostly not visible to audience. Too bad speaker had not been instructed to use the mouse pointer that would have been clearly visible and present on both projection screens.
