Synopsis: This refreshing presentation features extensive use of humor.

Connecting with the audience/using humor: The presenter really gets the audience going with an almost endless series of jokes and some very clever observations.

Writing: The presenter does a nice job of finding unusual analogies, although he does delve into the standard “dream” references.

Body language: Strong. The speaker moves around quite a bit without leaving the podium, he gestures, points, and more, all of which help to engage the audience in his state of mind.

Tempo: The presenter’s high energy level keeps him moving quickly, but he likely would have benefitted from slowing it down just a bit as sometimes humor builds more effectively when the audience has a chance to think about the jokes more and to hear them more clearly.
