Rave Reviews About Aaron David Miller
Everything went extremely well. First of all, he is a nice man and interacted very well with our group. His presentation was well organized and thorough and I think that our audience appreciated his vast range of knowledge - he talked about a variety of topics. He also has a good presentation style - his voice is strong, good intonation, and excellent vocabulary. He was a good match for us and we enjoyed having him with us. Thanks to everyone at Harry Walker for their help!
