I just wanted to thank you for a sparkling presentation at our research seminar last week. It was of professional standard – in fact the presentation and quality of sophisticated analysis was far better than we’ve seen at many academic conferences.

Your presentation was firmly focussed from the beginning, with clear evidence of breadth of knowledge (both in the paper, and in the Q&A afterwards).

Overall, your argument was compelling and original, and your presentational style stimulating, gently humorous and accessible, with excellent use of illustrative visual material.
