    Default Luke Pearce = Very impressive

    Calm, good natured, talks through things sensibly and best of all uses the TMO for assistance not direction

    Really really good. I liked "OK, OK I don't need 13 voices"

    I once attended a seminar run by Chris White where Luke Pearce spoke about the process of rising through the ranks - I think he was Level 4 by then. He was the only one of several speakers who used PowerPoint correctly. Too many put up a slide and then started reading it. He used slides with topic points and discussed the topics, taking questions.

    I have always liked his style. Clear and concise.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    Haha I knew I liked him. That's my pet hate of presenters. If you are going to just read slides, email them to me and I'll read them myself in my own time.

    Highly impressive last night, as he usually is.

    He has mastered the art of letting the captains know that they have been heard without allowing it to become a bitchfest or interfere with the decision making.

    I haven't seen WB for a while, but he and Pearce both manage the TMO process very well.
