    It was great. Martha Denton and Jack put on a great demonstration, and the interaction between the audience and themselves was rich!

    I was disappointed in the meetup. It was tedious to watch Jack give his presentation three times in a row, and I felt like I didn't learn anything about how to give a better presentation after hearing the critiques since everything was focused on him. I didn't think the woman presenting was that good. I found it annoying that it seemed like such a sales pitch for her seminars.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
