Most of the lecurtures as velocity were great, but this one was really one of the best and most memorable. Stephen is an exceptional speaker and presenter. I am preparing a summary of the conference for my company, and I would like to include a link to Stephen’s presentation. Can you post one or send it to me by email?

I loved this lecture! Is it possible to get the slides? I would like to review it, as well as explain it to my boss and collegues.
