Summary and Conclusion

Richard was very knowledgable, clearly knew the subject area extremely well. Broke all of the complicated parts down into easier to understand chunks, and had great rapport with the group. He made a potentially tough and dry subject interesting. As a complete novice, I really enjoyed and found it very helpful for my role.
