This was a really unique presentation. Not sure this fellow is for everyone, but I certainly liked his personality.

Great speaker, interesting take on creative writing

Good writing presentation.

Enjoyable to watch and insightful.

Very entertaining and instructive. Holds your attention and provides memory associations for good recall. Very novel approach.

This is literally one of the best CLEs I've ever attended. Stuart's presentation was dynamically presented and held my attention throughout. In addition to the delivery, the content was outstanding. Great work, TBA.

I was afraid this was going to be too long to be valuable, but the presenter was quite engaging and gave some good tips!

Information about topic sentences was very helpful.

Thought he was charming, and while legal writing can be boring he brought up a couple of things I will be doing in my next appeal.

Very informative. Speaker was very engaging and held my attention.

Active writing, not passive tense, is the best!

Outstanding presenter.

This CLE reminded me of things I had learned before but needed a reminder and added some new ideas. It was well worth the time!

Engaging speaker.

He was great- fantastic points in fun presentation.

The grammar, passive vs. active voice and sentence structure portions were extremely helpful. Also, the details about being concise. PowerPoint will be a useful tool.

Absolutely fantastic. The program held my attention start to finish. I‘ll definitely be watching it again.

Presenter is clearly a strong writer and presented well.

ROMA - Role Objective Media & Audience was an interesting way to think about legal writing. Also, it seems like common sense but using less words is something that I appreciated the emphasis on. We often write more than we should.

The presenter was very engaging and entertaining. He presented in the same manner as he was instructing the audience to write. This was a very good CLE that I took direct examples of improving my writing from for immediate use.

Good tips and engaging but a bit long. Probably could have been 2 hours.

Good reminders about losing the wordiness.

I loved it.

A great way of presenting tips for improving legal writing. It was informative, funny, and practical.
