    Karen Bartleson gave an outstanding, lively presentation on standards and she also shared about her Corporate business background knowledge which really helped us to better follow and understand standards creation and their use. It came in very handy for me since I recently started a new business and need to know about their relevance and processes. Her book is clear and easy to read for a beginner like me. Thanks Karen!
