How about some chapter titles?

Kind of silly to listen to an anonymous speaker entitled "chapter 3". Frustrating, but I'll just listen and compare to other speakers on YouTube and see if I can figure out who I'm listening to....

Great Business Minds - it is organized

Reading a large chunk of the other reviews.

First, great information is great information whomever it comes from, a huge piece of the reviews are highly concerned about who it was speaking.

Second, if you're confused on whom it is that is speaking look to the description on Audible. It's listed there. 1-14 is correct as presented. Don't complain, look to see if you're correct before you make such a large play against it.

Lastly, I do agree with the thought that it would be nice, though not needed, if the chapters had the presenters listed on the audible version.

Hopefully this helps any that reads my review.

Very bad audio book no intro no narration.

There should have been brief introduction of the each speaker before the speech commences.
80 percent of the speeches are good. One lady speech is not clear, name of the speaker could not be made out, speech should have been more objective.

Needs an intro between speeches

How could you possibly string one speech after another, in the format of an audiobook, without taking a moment in between to introduce the speaker, the venue, and the year? The content is great for the most part but can be confusing to decipher who on earth is talking.

Great diversity of people

Would have been great to have each speaker name and title announced prior to their performance. Maybe cleaning up noise of each recirdings and digitally enhance them. This cost can be recovered from selling book for more credit.

Some great ideas in here

Ok so yes there should be some chapter headings to tell you who is next, but a few of the chapters, especially by the GE CEOs were great. A solid 4 overall.
