this was a slog to follow

I find this very difficult to stay engaged with. I'm my professional life I attend many WebEx and conference calls so I understand presentation can at times be dry. This did not have any instance if attention grabbing. I just kept hoping for it to pull me in to no avail. I eventually stopped listening.

Mix of advice, not really actionable

I liked a few of the ideas, but most were old news...even for 2016. It felt like the collection was randomly picked instead of curated. Let’s see what 2018 has to offer...

Excellent content

Quite interesting the Intel you get from it. I've listened to it several times and you discover something new and useful each time.

easy way to digest best 9f HBR

this was an enjoyable way to listen to the best of Harvard Business review from the past year and interesting approach of headline summary full story. this gave an interesting way to reinforce learning rather than quickly whipping through the content.
