“Sam has presented at two professional association meetings that I have attended...In both cases he was effective in providing useful and practical information in an engaging style. Sam is approachable as well, so asking questions or offering comments was comfortable during the presentation as well as after. Having observed MANY presentations, I have found that most presenters fall into one of two categories - pure entertainment (fluff) or pure information (boring). Sam is one of the few presenters who finds a balance.”
