Awesome presentations. I really enjoyed the contrasting videos on communication during stressful flight. This brought the topic together beautifully.

This session did the impossible - made gas laws entertaining. Highlighting only the necessary information was extremely helpful. Very, very knowledgeable.

I learned a lot from many presentations; they were also very entertaining!
