I wanted to thank you for your keynote speech today. While the content was both timely and full of relevant material I was struck by what an excellent public speaker you are and how you captured and held the audiences attention. It's not often that a speaker truly causes the audience to think and reflect. Usually it is a self aggrandizing diatribe or even worse someone preaching and pontificating to their own goals. You talk was refreshing.
