Have any questions?
At the end of my presentations I like to give the audience an opportunity to ask me anything, here’s some of the most common questions I get asked. You may want to use these to start a discussion with your group. If you come up with any questions not on this list, feel free to send them over and I’ll do my best to answer them all
