Too basic Review by Ben

I'm not exactly sure who the target audience is for this, but it felt way too basic. Advice such as take notes, make friends in the same field and others were like a chapter from the Scientology books. There was a great idea though about keeping a notecard with the current ideas you're trying to flush out to keep them in the active part of the mind. A lot of this was an orange slide with the main topic. It would be better to make it more engaging. Since this is looks like a powerpoint presentation, you could at least add sub topics, pictures of what you're talking about, the main points in each section as they come up could also be displayed. Make it more active and people will probably stick with it. Unfortunately everyone in my office became bored of this and exited half way, so we can't give a full review.He is a great speaker, but from what I saw, there was no reason to really add video unless you can fix it up and make it more engaging.
