    The instructor was excellent and clearly well-practiced and well-versed in the subject matter.- One suggestion: some activities had too little time (5 mins) and some had too much time (20 mins), and some activities' allotted time was "just right".

    Larry was great. Sometime I wondered where he was going with an example, like the paintings, but then he brought it around and it made so much sense. It was very outside of the box, relatable training. The content was great, and so was Larry.
