Heidi M

"I really appreciated how Dr. Gibbs presented her seminar. I've been on hours of webinars lately and what Dr. Gibbs did differently and positively from others, she put her slides up and she had her face visible thoroughout the seminar. This way is felt like she was talking with you, interacting with you instead of a voice somewhere in the distance. I even watched this after it was recorded and still felt like Dr. Gibbs was present. "
