"This man does know of what he speaks, and he communicates brilliantly. Informed, engaging, interesting, he's one of the finest keynotes we've had. No nonsense and grounded in reality. Excellent choice of presenter. AMAZING!!! Alberto Carvalho for President! Thank you so much for bringing in this wise man to speak to us about the possibilities that exist in education. I took copious notes, and I will be thinking on many of the things he said for quite some time. Just terrific!”
