    Wow what a difficult presentation to listen to. The presenter clearly is very knowledgeable and comfortable speaking to a group, however, he lacks the humility and class that good / great presenters possess.

    His excessive use of the word "like" took away from his content and his comfort dropping F- and S-bombs also speaks to his maturity.

    Perhaps Twitter should vet their speakers a little more as it reflects poorly on their organization.

    Good talk. Energic presenter.
    Seems comfortable holding the glass at hand and drinking often ...
