I just attended a presentation by speaker, Jay Johnson… It was outstanding in the relevance of the topic about understanding behavior in individuals in groups to be more effective and successful. It was clear, concise, a little humorous and engaging. All the right stuff for adult learning! We were in an audience of over 150 on a virtual presentation with tremendous interaction and enthusiasm for the program!
