Lovely to listen to you this evening - you are a very natural speaker. I think ending with a story about a horse to close the circle of your speech would be a cute touch. I wasn't out to evaluate your speech and therefore listened for pure enjoyment and as such I learnt so much. Thanks. As far as the scoring is concerned, I always leave room for improvement. The platform is still new to all of us and we can all improve!

Well done, very current and relevant. Love the way you use your presentation and interact with the audience/learners. Like the idea of asking your audience to give feedback on specific topics in the chat box. Covid is real and your presentation just adds value and make us aware of the economical implications as well
