Lost opportunity by not presenting in a way that takes advantage of video format. Sound quality a bit lower than normal. The hollow-box sound was not enjoyable.

Great overview with practical advice on workplace investigations. I'm considering transitioning out of law and into the field of human resources, and this provided me with some good insight into one aspect of that area.
- Kelly G.
This was incredibly informative and very in-depth, not to mention well presented. Absolutely wonderful!
- Elizabeth A.
The speaker and her presentation were excellent. I do not have prior experience in this area, but, as an attorney who is interested pursuing a new area of practice, she has peaked my interest. Thank you.
