The webinar was way better than most of the webinars that I have attended. Michael was very well prepared and that impressed me the most. I would not mind attending a longer webinar session by such a knowledgeable speaker. I am satisfied with my experience on myCPE platform.

It was great

Not very informative or valuable for practical application, though that may be in large part to the short time allotted for such a broad subject.
