Author Comment
Subject: Convention presentations
Each one of these there presentations was phenomenal. These women offered ground-breaking ideas which were solidly backed by diligent research.

Almost two months later I am still rethinking what they said and how they made their determinations.

This was the most engaging session which I attended.
