"Our annual Patent Dinner event last night hit another homerun, thanks in large part to the presentation by Robert Ballard. His talk was fascinating, his topics were compelling, his slides were incredible, his stories were entertaining, his style was smooth and polished, he was pleasant and easy to work with... and he seemed to enjoy being with us and delivering his speech to our group. If there were any other criteria that would be used to measure a successful event, I'm fairly certain that Ballard would have nailed those, too! Thanks for another great speaker and for making our event a huge success for our group (and especially for our CEO)!"
