Usually the myCPE presenters are lively and engaging. This one literally read over 100 slides and didn't provide any useful, unique or helpful insights. The course title said "real life examples" and the real life examples were done as a bullet point with a "you can research them on your own" caveat. This was a real disappointing 2 hours and $20 spent.
