I was gob smacked and transfixed by this man's enthusiasm and knowledge of his area of expertise. Despite 47yrs in psych. nursing, 80% of what Jared spoke about was new to me. Exciting++++

Interesting presentation. Unfortunately the camera focuses on the speaker and we can't see the visuals or hear the audience input which are an important part of the presentation.
