Great use of time - the concepts taught in this course can greatly improve people's ability to create a powerful impression in a public speaking setting, interview, sales pitch or conversation. The slides could be better - they work ok for following along during the presentation, but aren't very good for review. A couple of the slides had videos where the music was so loud the instructor couldn't even be heard.
