    Hello Matt,

    First of all a big thank you for coming to Denver yesterday!

    Matt you presented way to much information in the short time that you were allowed, my note taking couldn’t keep up. Thanks for posting your links here so that I can go back and study your material in more detail.

    In particular I appreciated what you shared on the importance of reviews, the trust factors that reviews get and the 4 important things to know about reviews.

    In my opinion your presentation earned 5 Stars * * * * *
