Excellent. Greg spoke extremely well, he engaged his audience right from the start, he was very funny and held a diverse and discerning audience captivated for nearly an hour. Positive comments from all parts of the audience. We all very appreciative of Greg's speaking on the evening. We gained a great deal of credibility by engaging such a well regarded and received speaker, Greg was a significant drawcard for a good proportion of the people attending and no one was disappointed.
