Well laid out presentation with excellent examples. Heightened awareness of communication process and obstacles which lessen communication of ideas and harm interpersonal relationships. Very good points to be aware of in daily interaction with people.

the trivia at the beginning was a good way to kick it off. the material was good because it didn't just say what not to do but gave examples of how to do it correctly or differently.
