Elizabeth was terrific. She’s a fantastic speaker, knowledgeable, articulate and poised, and her presentation stimulated a much greater degree of audience engagement than I usually see. It didn’t hurt that we had an excellent turnout for her lecture - unsurprisingly, since like many coastal communities, the threat of sea level rise looms large here. Elizabeth was adept at fielding unexpected questions from the audience, and she projects a kind of basic likeability and intelligence that had everyone eating out of her hand. Our CEO told me privately afterwards that she thought Elizabeth’s was the best presentation we’d offered all year and I would have to agree.
